The 20-year-old arrived at the Banks's Stadium in the summer on a one-year deal following his release by Doncaster.

He has duly impressed for the Saddlers this term, making 23 appearances - 16 of which starts - and scoring three goals.

Baxendale said: "This is a good club and I am really enjoying my time here. I feel my game has developed well in the short time I have been here already and now I want to really kick on.

"The spirit around the place, from the manager down, is excellent and I am pleased to have signed this new deal. I am extremely excited about what the future holds in store here."

Boss Dean Smith added: "James has displayed outstanding character and showed us exactly what he is capable of. He's had a good run in the team and scored some impressive goals so far.

"He's a great personality and has a real zest for football. It's a pleasure to have him around the place and I am delighted he has agreed this new deal as he is a great prospect."

reat article. Hits the nail on the head. Encapsulates why I don't read tabloid newspapers anymore. The only thing worse is the 'told you so first' headline when they get lucky.

amous. If that can be achieved whilst sitting in your pants and without any degree of hard work, all the better. I have no desire to be famous, but the rest of that line suits me just fine. Great article by the way, well worth the wait.

here seems to be little focus on the performance of Besiktas. They played very well and stopped Arsenal from playing. Credit has to go to their manager. As much as Arsenal didn't play too well, we kept a clean sheet, but the home side made it very difficult.
