Walsall have confirmed their second signing of the summer as a former loanee returns on a permanent deal.
Walsall FC have confirmed the signing of Bristol City attacking midfielder Rory Holden on a permanent deal for an as-yet undisclosed fee.

The 22-year-old Derry-born man enjoyed a successful loan spell at the Banks’s Stadium during the 2019-20 season, scoring twice in 36 appearances in all competitions.

Holden, who has also had loan spells at Barrow and Rochdale, played in a variety of positions during his first stint with the Saddlers but particularly impressed in an advanced role in midfield.

Following the news of his arrival Saddlers boss Darrell Clarke spoke to club journalists and admitted he is looking forward to working with the Northern Irishman again this season and hopes Holden can pick up where he left off last term.

Speaking via the club's official website, Darrell said; "As we all saw last season, especially towards the end of the campaign, Rory is a fantastic player.

"He was somebody who we were really keen to work with again and I’m really pleased to see him back at the club permanently this time.

"Rory has an exceptional work ethic, which I mentioned last season, he knows the squad and what we’re about as a team and I’m really expecting him to push on again this season for us."
