Walsall striker Douglas James-Taylor makes Drogheda loan switch

Walsall striker Douglas James-Taylor has joined Drogheda United on loan until June 2025.


The 22-year-old scored three goals and set-up two more in all competitions for the Saddlers this season.

James-Taylor, who arrived from Stoke City permanently last summer after an initial season-long loan, has registered five goals and four assists in all competitions for the club.

Walsall activated the option year in his contract last week but James-Taylor will join up with the Irish outfit on July 1.

The move is subject to international clearance.
