Aspin Speaks on Donovan Wilson

12 January 2018

After bringing in his second signing of the January transfer window, Neil Aspin says he is delighted with the capture of Wolves forward Donovan Wilson.

The 20-year old joined up with the Valiants in a loan deal which will see him become a part of the new squad until the Summer.

Wilson is regarded highly by staff at the Molinuex as Aspin speaks about the new signing with the local media.

He said: “We needed to bring another striker in.

“We wanted someone who has pace and someone who’s ready to play at this level. Any player who is under 23 are gambles, but he’s been developing well this season and we have watched him play a couple of times this season.

“There were a few teams who were interested so we’re really pleased that we managed to bring him here.”

Wilson has been the gaffer’s second signing of this transfer window behind Dior Angus who signed from Redditch United a couple of weeks ago.

Now, with Chris Regis also back, Aspin feels he has a lot more options going forward now and is happy with business so far. But, also hopes to continue adding to his squad.

“I’m a lot happier now,” he added.

“We all know that I was unhappy after the result on the weekend, so we still need to bring in a defender and we’re looking at players all the time. I’ve been out watching games this week and we’re all watching them looking to strengthen the team.”

“We’re looking to bring in a midfielder too, which will put us in a good position going into the remainder of the season.”

Saturday could see the introduction of Wilson as Vale host Yeovil Town in League Two in hope of making his debut on the Vale Park turf.

“He’ll play for 45 minutes for Wolves on Friday,” said Aspin.

“He had an ankle injury previously and we had to make sure that he was okay. He felt more comfortable coming here with some game time under his belt.

“So, if he comes through that – he’ll be able to take his place in the squad for Saturday.”
