Veteran goalkeeper Jimmy Walker has extended his contract at League One strugglers Walsall until the end of the season.

Walker rejoined the Saddlers in October after previously spending 11 years at the club and he has made 10 appearances this season.

He will now finish the campaign at the Banks's Stadium and Saddlers boss Dean Smith is pleased to be able to call upon the 37-year-old's experience.

"I am delighted that 'Wacka' has signed this new deal," Smith told the club's official website. "He is a great character to have around the place.

"All Walsall fans know what he's about. His experience adds a calmness to the team; he's a great shot-stopper and a very good goalkeeper.

"Naturally I am pleased to have him on board until the end of the season. It's a massively important position and having 'Wacka' here will be a big help to us."
