M cEntee, 21, has been signed by League Two outfit Walsall on a two-year deal.
“I’m buzzing and I’m looking forward to getting started,” McEntee said after being announced as a Walsall player.
“The gaffer came to my agent and said he was interested so I spoke to my family and all the people in my close circle and we decided Walsall was the right fit for me."
“I’m a right-footed centre-back, I like to drive out with the ball, I’m comfortable on the ball, I’m quite physical and I enjoy a tackle as well.
“I want to integrate and show what I’m about. Hopefully I will help out the team on the pitch.”
Saddlers head coach Michael Flynn also revealed his delight in adding McEntee to his squad:
“We’re delighted to add Oisin to the squad,” he said. “He has come through at Newcastle and he’s already played men’s football up in Scotland.
“He’s a Republic of Ireland Under 21 international, good on the ball and he will come in and fit the way that I want to play building from the back.
“He’s the right age, hungry and hopefully he has a good career ahead of him.”
Walsall finished last season in 16th place, taking 54 points from their 46 league games.
