The club has confirmed the signing of Newcastle United defender Oisin McEntee, who has penned a two-year deal, and becomes the Saddlers' second new arrival ahead of the 2022/23 campaign.

21-year-old McEntee spent the 2021-22 season on loan at Scottish Championship club Greenock Morton. He played 28 times at Cappielow Park, scoring once as the Ton finished seventh in the league.

The promising defender has six caps for the Republic of Ireland Under 21s and was called up to their latest squad for UEFA European Under-21 Championship Qualifiers.

He has also represented his country at Under 19s, Under 18s and Under 17s level, as well as captaining Newcastle’s Under 23s and Under 18s and played in the Papa John’s Trophy during the 2019/20 campaign.

Speaking via the club's official website, Head Coach Michael Flynn admitted he is pleased to add McEntee to the squad and bolster his defensive ranks.

He said; "We’re delighted to add Oisin to the squad. He has come through at Newcastle and he’s already played men’s football up in Scotland.

"He’s a Republic of Ireland Under 21 international, good on the ball and he will come in and fit the way that I want to play building from the back.

"He’s the right age, hungry and hopefully he has a good career ahead of him."
