Walsall have today completed the signing of midfielder Billy Clifford on a short term deal until January 2015.

Clifford agreed a deal with Chelsea yesterday to end his contract early in order to join the Saddlers and play competitive first team football.

Clifford had previously had loan spells at Yeovil and Colchester.

Ex Walsall loanee Milan Lalkovic gave the club a glowing reference to Billy Clifford and it was his words that convinced Clifford to join the Saddlers on trial two weeks ago.

During those two weeks Clifford made big impressions with the media, the fans and more importantly manager Dean Smith.

We welcome Billy to the club and wish him the best of luck.
