The Express And Star are reporting that former Liverpool defender Tom Brewitt and former Burton Albion defender Tomas Egert are the only two trialists remaining at the club as Dean Keates looks to strengthen his defence.

Christian Mbulu and Adam Mitchell were also on trial with the Saddlers but have since been released.

Tom Brewitt has impressed many Walsall fans during his last two appearances for the Saddlers, including his stint at right back against Ajax where his pinpoint cross reached the head of Andy Cook for our first goal in our 2-0 victory (you can see his cross below)

Brewitt looks composed, quick, strong and not afraid to bark out instructions to his fellow defenders. He has captained both Liverpool and Middlesbrough youth team

Tomas Egert has been instructed he is free to leave Burton Albion following their tight budget and Egert impressed massively during our victory over Ajax. Egert is from the Czech Republic and has featured for Slovan Liberec, Spartak Trnava and Viktoria Zizkov in his homeland before moving to England with Burton Albion. He made his debut for the Brewers against Wolverhampton Wanderers last season.

Many Burton fans were disappointed that they allowed him to leave – their loss is our gain.

It is understood that Keates has continued to watch them both during training and both look set to play against Cheltenham on Saturday before Keates has to make a decision on which player to keep or keep both of them.
