Speaking to Walsall’s website, Devine said: "I had a few good chats with the gaffer and he said very good things. I am really excited to join and give my all for the team and show the fans what I can offer. Hopefully we can start picking up some points soon.

"It was a great experience for me [up in Scotland]. It was my first loan spell and my first taste of men’s football and I thought I dealt well with it.

"Now it is time for my next opportunity back playing in English football, which can be different, but I am looking forward to it.

"The head coach said to me that he wants me to come in and fight for my place. He wants me to do what I am good at and offer the team something different and that’s what I am willing to do and looking forward to doing.

"If I am going to describe myself as a player, I am an attacking full-back who loves getting up and down. I love a challenge and making things happen. I will always give my all for the team."
