Centre-back who rejoined the Saddlers on a season-long loan deal from West Brom in August.

The 20-year-old became a popular figure during his loan spell with the Saddlers last season and played an important role as we secured our League One status.

He scored three goals in 17 appearances and received widespread praise for his assured performances, being rewarded with a new two-year contract with Albion in June.

Coming through the ranks at The Hawthorns, Fitzwater was named Academy Player of the Year in 2014/15 and enjoyed loan spells with Chesterfield and Hednesford during the 2015/16 campaign.

He captained the Baggies’ Premier League 2 side in 2016/17 and appeared in all three of their Checkatrade Trophy matches that season.

Loaned to League Two Forest Green last summer, the promising defender scored one goal in 22 outings for Rovers before joining Walsall for the second half of the season.
