Walsall's Richard Taundry has signed a new two-year contract with the club.

The 21-year-old defender, who came through the youth ranks at the Banks's Stadium, made 31 appearances in all competitions last term. Taundry, who follows hot on the heels of Alex Nicholls in penning a new deal, said he was thrilled to commit his future to the club.

He told the club's official website: "This is my club and I'm delighted to have signed a new deal. I enjoyed my football last season, especially towards the end of the campaign, and I'm looking forward to carrying on from where I left off."

Saddlers boss Chris Hutchings added: "We're really pleased that Richard has re-signed. I was delighted with the progress he made last term. He is a Walsall lad, who gives his all to the cause."
