Darlow prolongs Saddlers spell

Walsall have extended the loan stay of Nottingham Forest

goalkeeper Karl Darlow for a further two months.

The 21-year-old arrived at the Banks’s Stadium towards the end

of September and has started all seven games since. His new

agreement sees him remain with the League One club until December

22.

Saddlers boss Dean Smith said: “Karl has done really well for

us. We are pleased with his progress and I am delighted Forest have

agreed to extend his stay here.

“He’s a young lad who is improving all of the time; he has

fitted in extremely well here and is keen to stay and build on the

experience he has gained with us already.”

Darlow penned a new three-year contract with parent club Forest

earlier this month.
