Walsall have signed Nottingham Forest keeper Karl Darlow on loan for a month with a view to extending it to the end of the season.

The 22-year-old had a loan spell at the Banks's Stadium earlier in the season, making eight appearances before being recalled to the City Ground.

Darlow came through the younger age-groups at Aston Villa before joining Forest's Academy at the age of 16, and he has progressed well since, making a couple of appearances for the first-team.

"Karl did really well during his first spell with the club," said Saddlers manager Dean Smith.

"It was unfortunate when Nottingham Forest had to recall him shortly after he had signed an extension to his deal here.

"We are grateful to Forest for allowing him to come back here to continue his footballing development and he will be a good acquisition to our squad."
