BURY winger Zeli Ismail has joined Walsall on loan until January.

The flying 23-year-old midfielder has been grounded for much of his time at the Energy Check Stadium due to injury.

He joined from Wolverhampton Wanderers last summer and made an instant impact in a team that also had fellow wide man Danny Mayor on the opposite flank.

Together they propelled David Flitcroft's side into the promotion places by the end of September before the wheels fell off.

The Albanian national scored four goals in 19 appearances before limping off in a 2-2 draw against Wimbledon in the FA Cup on Bonfire Night and he never played again that season.

Ismail has figured in four of Bury's first five games of this campaign, but only made one start.
