Manchester City prospect Jordy Hiwula extends Walsall loan

Jordy Hiwula
Hiwula has played for England at Under-18 and Under-19 levels.

Walsall have agreed to extend the loan of young forward Jordy Hiwula from Premier League side Manchester City for a further month.

Hiwula joined the Saddlers in February after a loan spell at Yeovil, and has scored three goals for the club.

"I'm happy to extend the loan," said the 20-year-old. "The style of football here really suits my game."

He could play in the Johnstone's Paint Trophy final as he did not appear in the competition while at Yeovil.

The youngster has made six appearances since joining Walsall last month and making a goalscoring debut against Doncaster Rovers.

"They're a great bunch of lads here, who helped me settle in straightaway," he added. "I am delighted that I will remain part of that for the next month."
