Weston: New deal
Wales international Rhys Weston has penned a new deal to keep him at Walsall until 2010.
The 27-year-old defender has had a fine season for The Saddlers after joining on a free transfer last summer.
He signed an initial one-year contract but his impressive performances have earned him an extension, and he is happy to be staying.
Weston said: "I am delighted. It is a nice feeling to have my future sorted out and I can now concentrate on the run-in with nothing else to think about other than helping this club to achieve promotion.
"I have had a great start to my Walsall career but you don't win anything in March, so I will be doing all I can to help the team get promoted."
Walsall manager Richard Money has also expressed his satisfaction with the deal, adding: "Rhys has become an important member of the team.
"His performances have become more and more consistent as the season has progressed and we hope that, over the next two years, he will continue to be an important player for Walsall Football Club."
