Walsall have had a very busy summer as they look to challenge in the forthcoming League Two campaign having ended last season 19th with an interim manager in charge.

Matty Taylor has been appointed as Head Coach and the Saddlers player recruitment has seen them bring in a number of new faces.

Most notably former Republic of Ireland international Stephen Ward has joined, while fellow new defensive recruits include Welshman Ash Taylor who has switched from Scottish Premiership Aberdeen, Manny Monthe from Tranmere, Zak Mills from Port Vale, Rollin Menayese in a loan from Mansfield and Danny Coogan has returned.

Former Cheltenham loanee Joss Labadie is a noteable addition from Newport County in midfield, while Brendan Kiernan has transferred from Harrogate Town. Jack Earling has made the step up from FC Halifax.
