David Davis today hailed his "perfect" move to Walsall and immediately targeted a first-team place.

The midfielder completed a month's loan switch from Wolves yesterday and is primed for a League One debut at Rochdale tomorrow.

"I am here to get regular first-team football, gain experience and develop as a player," he said. "This is the perfect move for me and it's a great set-up here.

"I will be playing at a good level and it also means I don't have to move away from home. That will allow me to concentrate 100 per cent on my football."

Davis comes in with Richard Taundry out for at least three weeks with a knee injury as the Saddlers look to recover from three successive defeats.

Steve Jones (ankle) misses out tomorrow, while Alex Nicholls serves the last match of his three-game ban.

"I can't wait to get stuck into it. I am the type of player who likes to break things down and do what I call the 'nitty-gritty'. I like to get stuck in and work hard and hopefully the fans will take to me straight away."

Davis, 19, trained with the Walsall's Centre of Excellence eight years ago before being snapped up by Wolves and was handed a professional contract last year.

He was one of a record seven trainees who earned deals and Danny Batth, Scott Malone, Ashley Hemmings and Davis have all played League football.

Steve Jones is also out of tomorrow's clash with a sprained ankle while Alex Nicholls serves the last match of his three game ban.

Boss Chris Hutchings, who has also handed a trial to former Birmingham midfielder Bryan Hughes, added: "David is an energetic midfielder with bags of potential and we're grateful to Mick McCarthy for allowing him to join us on loan."
