The 30-year-old became a popular figure during his first spell with the Saddlers in 2016/17, scoring four goals in 31 appearances while on loan from Scunthorpe.

Born in Taunton, the experienced defender started his career with Plymouth and enjoyed loan spells at Tiverton and Torquay before moving to Stevenage in January 2008.

He made over 200 appearances in four-and-a-half years at Broadhall Way, helping Boro win back-to-back promotions from the Conference Premier to League One.

Laird signed for Preston in May 2012 and was a key member of the North End team that gained promotion from League One via the play-offs in 2014/15.

Joining Scunthorpe that summer, he played 39 games for the Iron and spent the 2016/17 season on loan at the Banks’s Stadium.

He transferred to Forest Green in June 2017 and made 44 appearances as Rovers retained their EFL status last term.
