The latest chapter in the Matt Preston saga has been issued by Manager Jon Whitney, and we’re still not really any closer to knowing whether he will be a Walsall player when the transfer window closes.

Speaking to the Express & Star Whitney, said:

“Matt is still not sorted.

“I am hoping he can still maintain his fitness with us. I think I need to try and look at a few loans for my younger players before I can get Matty in.”

Clear cut as ever! ‘I think’ really shouldn’t be a phrase used by a Manager on the eve of the new season. In my opinion, Preston isn’t going to be much more than a League Two defender, but the fact that this situation has been allowed to drag on for so long makes the club look weak at best.
