Danny Guthrie the Latest to Sign a New Deal With the Saddlers

Walsall FC have confirmed that experienced midfielder Danny Guthrie has put pen-to-paper on a new deal which will keep him at Banks's Stadium for the foreseeable future.
33-year-old, Shrewsbury-born Guthrie joined the Saddlers as a free agent after leaving Indonesian Liga club Mitra Kukar last summer and went on to make twenty-eight first-team appearances during the curtailed campaign.

Guthrie, a product of the Manchester United and Liverpool youth academies, began his professional career with the Reds in 2005, making a handful of appearances whilst also enjoying loan spells with Southampton and Bolton Wanderers.

Danny joined Kevin Keegan's Newcastle United in the summer of 2008 and went on to make over one-hundred first-team appearances for the Magpies over the next four seasons.

Danny was released by Newcastle in June 2012 and went on to join Reading later that summer. He would make just shy of seventy first-team appearances for the Royals, also enjoying a loan spell with Fulham before leaving for pastures new once again.

He was soon back in work and signed a two-year deal with Blackburn Rovers - following a successful trial spell - and would make just over forty appearances before leaving the club at the end of the 2016/17 campaign.

After opting to try his hand at football overseas Danny, a former England Under-16 international, inked a deal with Mitra Kukar in January 2018, making thirty league appearances before his short-term deal came to an end.

Following the news of Danny's new deal, Walsall manager Darrell Clarke admitted he was pleased to see Guthrie commit his immediate future to the club.

Speaking via the Saddlers' official website, he said; "I am delighted that Danny has decided to extend his stay with the club. He has undoubted ability having played at the highest level for a number of years and when he’s in the team and fit, he makes a massive difference for us with the qualities he possesses."
