Saddlers manager Darrell Clarke has made his sixth signing of the season.
Walsall have completed the Deadline Day signing of Birmingham City striker Adan George, who joins the club on a short-term loan.

Adan signed his first professional contract with Blues in the summer and has already made two first-team appearances for the St. Andrew's side - against Cambridge United in the Carabao Cup and Brentford on the opening day of the season.

George, a product of both the Blues and West Bromwich Albion youth systems, also enjoyed a loan spell with Bromsgrove Sporting in 2018 and impressed during Birmingham’s run in the FA Youth Cup last season.

Saddlers boss Darrell Clarke was pleased to add the striker to his squad, speaking via the club's official website, he said; "Adan will be a good addition to the squad.

"He’s fast, powerful and is capable of scoring goals so will be an exciting addition to the team.

"In these difficult and challenging times, we’re really grateful to Birmingham for allowing him to join on loan without us having to contribute towards his wages and therefore at no cost to the Club."

The Saddlers were forced into making a move ahead of the 5.00pm deadline following the news that striker Josh Gordon will be out until December after suffering a knee injury during the recent clash with Colchester United.

26-year-old Gordon had already made six first-team appearances and contributed two goals to the Saddlers' strong start to the season and will be a big miss as he begins a spell on the sidelines.
