Wednesday 31st January

Full interview with Matty HERE

In our second loan move of transfer deadline day Saints have secured the services of Manchester United youth Matty Willock. The 21 year old has come through both the Arsenal and Manchester United academies and has cut short a loan move with Dutch side FC Utrecht.

Tommy Wright on the signing: “I’m really please to get 21 year old Matty who has been on loan at FC Utrecht. He is a midfielder who possesses a lot of qualities, very comfortable on the ball, physically as well. He’s comfortable playing as a holding midfielder or attacking midfielder.

"When you get someone who’s gone through the academy at Arsenal and Man United he’s going to provide real quality in the midfield for us. He will go straight into the squad for Saturday’s game at Hearts.”
