In line with Football League Regulation 65 – Re-engagement of Players - Walsall Football Club can today announce the following in respect of out-of-contract players:
Joe Edwards has been offered a new contract while the Club have taken up the one-year option to extend the contract of Amadou Bakayoko.
Academy Player Dylan Parker has been offered a First Year Professional Contract.
Each player has until 10th June 2018 to either accept or decline the offer made, after which time the offer lapses.
Flo Cuvelier, Simeon Jackson, Reece Flanagan, Will Shorrock and Milan Butterfield have all been given free transfers and therefore been released. The Club would like to place on record our thanks to these players for all of their efforts and contribution during their time with the Club and we wish them well in the future.
The Club have made numerous attempts to extend the contract of Erhun Oztumer over the last 12 months. However, Erhun’s representatives have expressed a desire to explore alternative options and, while the Club remain open to negotiation, we respect that position.
All other players remain on contract beyond 30th June 2018.
