The 21-year-old, who has had prior loan spells with Tranmere Rovers and Coventry City, winning the latter's Young Player of the Year award last season, beat today's 5pm loan transfer deadline to sign for the Saddlers.
Pennington is a regular in the centre of the David Unsworth's U21s side and, having already made his senior bow for the Blues earlier this season, now gets the chance to experience more first-team experience in League One.

He must've been injured but I'm not finding much... See, now that's something Harold Matthews would've been all over.

He came on as a sub against Dagenham in the FA Cup, played against Sunderland in an U21 game. So for the lad's sake, he is better off going to Walsall and playing some real football for the rest of the season.
He is coming along nicely but will not help his game by playing U21 football at his age... glorified practice matches.
