Walsall manager Jon Whitney has offered a further update to fans with regards to upcoming transfers. The Saddlers are yet to make a signing this summer and with a number of current players yet to sign new contracts, supporters are starting to get restless.

Speaking to the Express & Star Whitney, said:

“We are in really late negotiations with a full-back and a centre-half.”

“We have agreed verbally that they will join us.

“And we are hoping to announce them the week after next when these players come back from their holidays. They are players that are still contracted in June.”

The full-back mentioned by Whitney is likely to be left-back Luke Leahy who has been released by Falkirk and heavily linked with a move to the Saddlers. However, the indentity of the centre-back is less clear cut and it’ll be interesting to see who Whitney has lined up.
