Dean Smith today ruled out a loan move for young Walsall winger Kieron Morris.
The Saddlers boss is excited by the potential of the club’s first year professionals but acknowledges first team opportunities are limited.
He intends to send several out on loan to build their experience but is keen to keep 19-year-old Morris, an unused substitute against both Tranmere and Port Vale who impressed in pre-season.
Asked about loan moves, Smith said: “That is certainly the case, certainly for the first year pros.
“But not Kieron Morris. He went out last year to Worcester and came back a different animal. He won’t be going out on loan at the moment because he is doing so well.”
