Marty Taylor reacts to recent Walsall agreement



Rollin Menayese – who has spent the first half of the season on loan at the Saddlers – has completed a permanent move to Walsall.

The 24-year-old, who has played 25 games since joining Walsall on loan from Mansfield in the summer and has played 19 out of 22 games in Sky Bet League Two, has signed a contract until the summer of 2024 for an undisclosed fee.

Matt Taylor’s side are away to strugglers Stevenage in Sky Bet League Two action on Saturday, with Menayese set to start.

The boss said of the deal, as quoted in the Express & Star: “(It) shows where we see Rollin, and the faith we have in him to grow better.”

Taylor also revealed to the Express & Star: “It’s the right decision from the football club because Rollin has proved this season that he can produce consistent performances.” He continued: “There are areas of Rollin’s game that he needs to improve, and we speak about those continuously.

“He understands how much we value him here, and the environment we’ve created is one where he can learn every day. He understands the dynamic of the changing room and that the players have faith in him.

“So, we’re continually driving him on along with the rest of the group. That’s the main thing for us this season.”

The Verdict

As any football fan will know, it can be tough having loan players during a transfer window, as the heart and soul of the player may not always be with the football club. Despite this, Menayese has proved his ambition to stay with the Saddlers and how he enjoys being at the football club.

Being tied down to a contract is significant for a footballer as they know their team and their goals for the rest of their contract. Therefore, getting this deal signed is great from both parties – the club and the player.

Rollin can now enjoy the remainder of the season and the rest of his two-and-a-half year contract.
