Walsall FC can today confirm our retained list following the conclusion of the 2018/19 season.
Out-of-contract players Liam Kinsella and Nicky Devlin have been offered new two-year contracts, while we have exercised our option to extend the contract of Callum Cockerill-Mollett by a further year. As publicised earlier in the year, we have also extended Kory Roberts’ deal as he continues his rehabilitation from a long-term injury.
Joe Edwards, Kieron Morris, Luke Leahy, Jon Guthrie, Zeli Ismail, Chris Dunn, Jordon Sangha, Tobias Hayles-Docherty, Isaiah Osbourne, Cameron Peters and Omar Mussa have all been given free transfers and will leave the club when their contracts expire in June. We would like to thank all outgoing players for their efforts during their time with the Saddlers and wish them well for the future.
Long-serving club captain Adam Chambers remains in discussions with the club about his future both on and off the field.
Joe Slinn, Dan Vann and Dylan Parker have been invited back for pre-season training, while Maz Kouhyar, who ruptured his anterior cruciate ligament in April, will continue his rehabilitation with the club throughout the summer.
Second-year apprentices Tom Leak and Luke Little have been offered short-term professional deals.
