Liverpool youngster Jack Robinson has joined Championship side Wolverhampton Wanderers on loan until the end of the season.
The 19-year-old defender made his Reds debut in 2010 when he became the youngster player to ever appear for the club's senior side against Hull.
Saunders told wolves.co.uk: "Jack is left-footed and he can play anywhere down the left side and he gives us competition for places.
"I spoke to (Liverpool manager) Brendan Rodgers, I spoke to Steve Cooper, who was his coach in the Under-16s and 17s, and I've spoken to nearly all the coaches that he's played for and all of them have been very positive about him.
"He's got really good quality on the ball, he's aggressive and he's a winner.
"Sometimes a young lad and a fresh face comes in and lifts the place, and I think Jack is strong enough to be able to deal with the pressure."
Robinson is expected to make his debut on Tuesday in the Championship tie against Barnsley, as Wolves continue to look for their first win under Saunders.
