Walsall have been boosted by the news that young midfielders Kris Taylor and Mark Wright have signed new one-year deals.

The Saddlers are in the process of reshaping their squad following relegation from Division One and recently released nine players.

The pair were two of only a handful of players to be offered new deals, and they have now agreed to the terms put to them by the club's paymasters.

Taylor, 20, claims it was player-manager Paul Merson's declaration that he would give youth a chance next term which prompted him to stay, while Wright, 22, is looking for the chance to help the club bounce back at the first time of asking.
