Darlington striker Harvey Saunders has today signed for League One side Fleetwood Town – but he will stay on loan with Darlo for the rest of the season.
Darlo say that Saunders, 21, ‘has matured into a very good player this season and has been a regular in the starting line-up.’ He has scored seven goals this season, bringing his total since he joined from Durham City in January 2017 to 11 in 25 starts and 45 sub appearances.
Darlington manager Tommy Wright said: “Harvey has improved immensely this season, and he’s proved that he’s ready to make that step up to Football League level.
“Not only does he score goals, but he does a lot of positive things that people don’t see. He is eager to learn, and he takes everything on board.
“I’m sure that he’ll continue to improve and be a big success at Fleetwood.”
Part of the deal with Fleetwood is that Harvey – who is moving for an undisclosed sum with clauses added – will return to the Quakers on loan for the rest of the season.
