Danny Guthrie Departs - By Mutual Consent

Walsall FC have confirmed their first departure of Transfer Deadline Day.
Danny Guthrie Departs - By Mutual Consent
Walsall Football Club have today confirmed that midfielder Danny Guthrie has today left the club by mutual consent.

The 33-year-old well-travelled midfielder made a total of forty-four first-team appearances for the Saddlers, scoring just once.

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 inked a deal with Mitra Kukar in January 2018 but had been out of work since that deal came to an end.

We would like to join the club in thanking Danny for his efforts during his time in WS1, and wish him well for the future.
