Walsall have snapped up Sam Parkin on a free transfer following the striker's release by Luton Town.

Parkin has signed a one-year contract, with the option of a further 12 months, at Walsall after leaving Luton following the club's relegation from the Football League.

He joined the Hatters in 2006 from Ipswich Town, but spent three months on loan at League One side Leyton Orient last season, failing to score in 15 appearances.

The 28-year-old has now clinched a move to the Banks's Stadium and Saddlers boss Chris Hutchings is happy with his latest recruit.

"We are delighted to get Sam on board," Hutchings told the club's official website. "He is a quality player who retains the ball well and brings others into play.

"His experience is going to serve us well; he has certainly showed the necessary hunger and desire in training and hopefully we can get him scoring regularly again.

"This is another excellent addition to the squad."
