McDonald could be back

Published Add your comment

Walsall manager Chris Hutchings insists Clayton McDonald could well be back at the Banks's Stadium in the new year.

The Manchester City defender's loan deal ends after Saturday's clash at Millwall and is unable to be extended before January as he will have served the maximum 93-day period permitted under the terms of an emergency agreement.

But that does not mean Hutchings cannot make another move in the January transfer window, and he plans to speak to McDonald's agent and City to see where the Saddlers stand. "We're in contact and trying to sort that situation out," Hutchings told the Express and Star.

"Over the next couple of weeks we might have a little bit more news," he added.

"It's ongoing, I'll be in touch with his agent in the coming weeks and finding out the situation with Manchester City."

McDonald, who turned 21 on Sunday, has made eight appearances for Walsall but has been a peripheral figure since returning from a minor groin injury back in October.
