League One side Walsall have parted company with defender Rhys Weston and striker Sam Parkin by mutual consent.
Weston's departure paves the way for a possible switch to Motherwell after the 29-year-old defender linked up with Craig Brown's Clydesdale Bank Premier League side last Tuesday for a two-day trial, before returning to the midlands ahead of the club's 1-1 draw at Carlisle.
The former Wales international, who joined the Saddlers in 2007, would likely jump at the chance to ply his trade in the SPL with his wife from Scotland and his family also based North of the border.
Weston and forward Parkin, who arrived at the Banks's Stadium last summer, were both due to see their current contracts expire at the end of this season.
Manager Chris Hutchings told the club's official website: "I'd like to thank Rhys and Sam for their hard work and effort.
"Rhys has been here for three seasons and has been a valuable member of the squad. I sat down with him and we have both agreed to go our separate ways.
"The same can be said for Sam, he's been with us this season and has played his part."
