Ginnelly in demand
After three years as a Burnley player, which included loans at Altrincham, Walsall, Lincoln City and Tranmere Rovers, Josh Ginnelly was released at the end of last season and returned to former loan club Walsall on a one year deal.
He’s had a good start to the season and has made 21 appearances and his form has attracted Preston. Their interest emerged a couple of days ago and when Walsall played Peterborough in the afternoon, manager Dean Keates made the decision to leave him out of the side.
“Josh is not here today,” Keates said. “There are one or two things going on. We have had an offer for him and I had to make a decision that was best for the group. He hasn’t travelled with us. A concrete offer has been tabled and I had to make a decision for the football club and I think that was justified today. What happens over the next two weeks with Josh will happen.”
We signed him as an 18-year-old from Shrewsbury where he’d already made a league debut having come on three times as a substitute but the closest he came to the first team at Burnley was being part of the squad in pre season in 2016 when he scored a late winner in a friendly at Bolton.
With Preston thought to be the club who have tabled the offer, a return to Lancashire for the winger now looks more than a possibility.Share this page :
