Taylor pleased to add Otis Khan

19 October 2021

Walsall Head Coach Matt Taylor was pleased to add another attacking option to his squad after acquiring the services of Otis Khan.

The 26-year-old joined on a free transfer on Monday afternoon after leaving fellow League Two side Tranmere Rovers.

Taylor is keen to see Khan push for a place in the squad and is delighted to have him on board.

“I’m very pleased,” Taylor said.

“He’s been training with us for a period of just over a week. What Otis does is he gives us another attacking option, he can play either side and we can see that he handles the ball very well.

"Now it’s a case of us getting him to a point where he understands exactly what’s required of him when he gets on the pitch so I’m very pleased to have him on board as a character, he fits exactly the profile that we want.

“It’s nice to have him involved with the squad.

“What Otis wants to do now is prove he’s good enough to get into the squad and he wants to compete which is a great thing because the forward players that we’ve got are all in good form and hopefully Otis can come in and add to that.”

Attention now turns to tonight’s trip to Oldham Athletic in Sky Bet League Two.

Taylor has started to see more consistency in recent weeks but is keen to see his team continue to progress.

“To be able to pick the same team bar the goalkeeper, that was a difficult decision to put Carl back in because Jack’s done very well. We’re getting more consistency, still not at the level I want.

“Looking at us now to where we were four weeks ago, there’s a clear shift. What we’ve got to do now is go to Oldham and pick up a positive result.”
