Walsall have bolstered their ranks by signing Wolves youngsters Connor Ronan and Connor Johnson on loan, subject to EFL and FA clearance.

In what turned out to be a frantic deadline day at the Banks's Stadium, Ronan on a temporary basis until January, while Johnson has agreed a season long switch.

A creative midfielder, Ronan has joined Walsall after a hugely impressive loan spell in League One with Portsmouth last season.

The Irishman impressed in 17 outings for Pompey and had been expected to re-join Kenny Jackett's side this year.

Johnson, a former Wolves under-23s captain, enjoyed a loan spell in National League North with AFC Telford in the 2017/18 campaign.

He will gives the Saddlers valuable competition at centre-back with Jon Guthrie and Jack Fitzwater the only other senior central defenders currently available to manager Dean Keates.
