Ledesma back at Saddlers

Argentinian attacking midfielder Emmanuel Ledesma has returned to Walsall on a deal until the end of the season.
The midfielder, 23, established himself as a real fans' favourite at the Banks's Stadium last season having signed a similar deal.
Ledesma made 10 appearances, scoring once, as the Saddlers avoided relegation - something manager Dean Smith will be hoping he can inspire once again this term with his side struggling at the wrong end of the League One table.
"We are delighted to have Emmy back," Smith said. "He has great technical ability, is good with both feet and can score goals. He knows a lot of the lads from last season and has settled in immediately. He's trained all week and looks really sharp.
"We've stayed in contact with him and we knew there was a possibility of him coming back. He really enjoyed his time with us but his girlfriend struggled to settle in England, which is why he returned home last summer.
"She's now pregnant and Emmy is, quite rightly, looking for something more long-term, so we'll see how the next two months go. He's a lively character and I'm sure he'll play his part between now and the end of the season."
