Walsall have today secured youngster Mal Benning for a further 2 and half years following his impressive displays this season.
Speaking to BBCWM Dean Smith said
‘I’ve known him since he was an Under-15 and he’s got better and better.’
Smith continued: ‘He’s another real talent to come off the production line here.
‘He’s taken the opportunity that has been given to him and showed that he can handle playing at this level. This new deal gives him a great chance to continue that progression.’
This is great news for Walsall as Mal has taken his chance since deputising for injured Andy Taylor.
