Walsall Set to Sign Former Birmingham and Yeovil Winger

According to the latest media reports, Walsall are set to sign former Birmingham City and Yeovil Town winger Wes McDonald, with the 22-year-old set to become the Saddlers' ninth signing of the summer.
London-born McDonald is currently a free agent after leaving the Glovers at the end of last season, and, given the Saddlers' lack of width, could form a crucial part of next season's squad.

Spending time with the Crystal Palace, Fulham, and Birmingham City's youth systems, Wes turned pro with the Blues in 2015, going on to enjoy loan spells with Nuneaton Town and Solihull Moors.

Wes failed to make a single first-team appearance for Birmingham and would eventually leave the St. Andrew's-based side in the summer of 2018, initially joining Queens Park Rangers on trial before signing a short-term deal with Yeovil.

He made a total of twelve first-team appearances for Yeovil before leaving the club when his short-term deal came to an end.
