Saddlers snap up Otis Khan

18 October 2021

Walsall Football Club are delighted to announce the signing of Otis Khan on a short-term deal.

The 26-year-old attacking midifelder spent last season at Tranmere Rovers where he played 49 times and helped them reach the play-offs.

Khan began his professional career at Sheffield United and enjoyed loan spells at Buxton, Matlock Town and Barrow during his time at Bramall Lane.

He left the Blades in January 2016 and a short spell at Barnsley followed.

In the summer of 2016, he joined Yeovil Town in League Two where he really kickstarted his career. He spent two years at Huish Park and scored 18 goals in 87 appearances.

Khan’s form attracted the attention of Mansfield Town who signed him for an undisclosed fee in June 2018.

He netted four times during his spell at Field Mill prior to a loan move to Newport County in January 2020.

Last season’s spell at Tranmere followed before his departure from Prenton Park in the summer.

Khan is looking forward to getting started and is pleased to get the deal done.

“I am really happy to be here,” Khan said.  

“Walsall is a massive club and this is a great opportunity for me and I can’t wait to get going.

“This is a great club; the fans are great and I know quite a few of the lads in the changing room so that always helps.

“The way the manager plays, he showed me a presentation on how he plays and I went down and did a week of training and I loved everything about it.

“The way he works, the formations, the players, just everything really it was all a great fit.”
