The club were delighted to confirm the signing of diminutive attacking midfielder Erhun Oztumer on 1st July 2016.

The 25-year-old linked up with the Saddlers once his contract with League One rivals Peterborough expired.

Born in Greenwich, Oztumer spent nine years at Charlton prior to joining Turkish side Manisaspor’s youth scheme in 2008, aged 16.

He then spent time with Sivasspor and Anadolu Uskudar, where he made 35 league appearances, before returning to England with non-league Dulwich Hamlet in 2012.

Oztumer went on to score over 60 goals in all competitions and helped Dulwich win the Isthmian League Division One South title in 2012/13.

He moved to Peterborough for an undisclosed fee in June 2014 and played 58 times over two seasons with Posh, scoring seven goals.
