Walsall have completed the signing of Manchester United defender Reece Devine, who joins on loan until the end of the current campaign.

20-year-old Devine, who spent youth spells with Wolverhampton Wanderers and Manchester City before joining United, spent the first-half of this season on loan at Scottish Premiership side St. Johnstone but was recalled earlier this month.

The left-sided defender made ten first-team appearances across all competitions whilst with the McDiarmid Park side, with three appearances coming in the Europa League, including a famous one-all draw with Galatasaray.
Speaking via the club's official website, Saddlers Head Coach Matt Taylor is looking forward to working with the defender and is delighted to add him to the squad.

Taylor said; "Reece is someone who we have been working on bringing to the club for a period of time. This isn’t his first loan, which is very good for ourselves.
"He comes down from St Johnstone in the Scottish Premiership, and he is a player that I feel has the attributes to play men’s football regularly.
"He’s combative, he wants to fight, he has obviously got wonderful technical elements to his game because of his upbringing and where he has been previously as an academy player.
"The thing I like about Reece is that he was very keen on this move, and he had other options on the table, and he wants to come and prove himself.
"I can’t wait for us to work with him, for his teammates to work with him, and for him to understand the way we play.
"He provides us with excellent competition in an area of the pitch that we were light. We had to make sure we made good additions, and I am really pleased with being able to add Reece to the squad."
