Walsall Sign Motherwell Midfielder Ross Tierney on a Season-Long Loan

The Saddlers have secured the services of a talented midfielder.
Bescot Banter - Walsall FC NewsWalsall have confirmed the signing of Motherwell midfielder Ross Tierney, who arrives at Poundland Bescot Stadium on a season-long loan.

The 22-year-old former Republic of Ireland U21 international is a product of both the St. Kevin's Boys and SKB-Bohs Academy youth systems before turning professional with Bohemians in 2019.

After making almost seventy first-team appearances for Bohs, Ross joined Motherwell on a three-year deal in December 2021 and has so far made thirty-eight appearances for the club, including twenty-three last season.

Speaking via the club's official website, Head Coach Mat Sadler welcomed Ross to the club, he said; "Ross comes into the building and will bring some really good competition in that midfield area.

"He’s had a fantastic first initial spell of his career and now it’s about going again. He’s been desperate to come down to England and show what he’s all about so we feel very fortunate to have him here.

"He’s scored goals against Celtic, he’s scored goals against Rangers so he’s got an attacking pedigree.

"He provides a bit of a different option to what we currently have and I’m especially looking forward to work with him because of his high energy, work rate and he wants to make defenders defend.

"He’s got a lovely ability to find a pass in the final third so I’m really pleased to have him here."

Ross will provide some welcome competition in the Walsall midfield and, should his stay be a success, could easily become the latest loanee to make a permanent switch to WS1 in the future.
