Saville Delighted to Sign


10:43 28th August 2014

George Saville expressed his delight at signing for Wolves as the midfielder prepares to begin training with Kenny Jackett's men.

Speaking ahead of his first training session at Compton, Saville said: “I’m delighted to be signing, I just wanted to get started now. Get with the squad, have a few days training and look forward to Saturday.

“I just think it’s a proper football club. It’s big, it’s ambitious, the squad looks strong, there’s a really good chance of progressing and I just want to be part of it.”

Having played under Jackett before, the 21-year-old explained how the Wolves Head Coach was influential in Saville's move to Molineux.

“He was keen on getting me," said the midfielder before adding: "I think he presented to the board well and they obviously trust him.

“It was ongoing all summer. The gaffer showed an interest and it’s a good opportunity for me to come and play.”

When asked to describe himself as a player and what he believes he can bring to the squad at Molineux, Saville replied: “I’m just a box-to-box midfielder, I like a tackle. It’s always good to score a goal but I quite enjoy the ugly side as well.

“I think I can bring a few things; a different way of playing. I can play, I can do the ugly side, I can try and bring goals to the team and bit of security for the back four when it’s needed.”

The former Chelsea star featured in nearly every game during Brentford's 2013/14 Sky Bet League 1 campaign as part of a loan deal from the Blues and believes gaining promotion with the Bees was invaluable experience.

He explained: “League 1’s tough, it’s different but we coped with it well. Both Brentford and Wolves did well to get promoted.

“To have a promotion on your CV is fantastic, the feeling of going up’s great so it was really pleasing.”

The highly-rated youngster joins Wolves four games into the Sky Bet Championship season, but Saville believes Jackett's men need to stay grounded after their strong start.

“I think we’ve got a chance, it’s a long season so you don’t want to get ahead of yourself and be thinking about April/May time.”

“You’ve just got to think about now and getting a good run together, pick up the points and go from there."
