Febian Brandy - who left Walsall in the summer of 2013 for Bramall Lane - could be making a return to the Saddlers on a permanent basis. 

After failing to impress the likes of Chris Morgan, David Weir & Nigel Clough, the 25-year-old was loaned back to the team that helped him restart his professional career after spells at Notts County and Greek side Panetolikos.

Current manager Clough is comfortable with his current forwards Chris Porter and Jose Baxter, who've scored a combined total of 18 goals this season.

This would see Brandy fall down the pecking order and would play second fiddle to the dynamic duo. It's possible that Clough could release Brandy as he didn't make the impact imagined for the Blades.

Whilst Saddlers manager Dean Smith is happy with the current form of Craig Westcarr and Romaine Sawyers who've helped his side avoid relegation this season, Smith would be glad to have Brandy back.

After scoring seven and assisting Grigg with his 20 goal tally in the 2012-13 season, and scoring four since returning in January, he would be an ideal candidate to replace Westcarr who is likely to leave in the summer when his contract expires. 

With Brentford promoted to the Championship, it's understood that they will receive a compensation package in the region of £50,000 after the sale of the Northern Ireland starlet which could be used in securing Brandy's services.

As well as the initial fee paid, Walsall are due £30,000 for every 20 competitive first-team games Grigg plays up to a maximum of 100, i.e. £150,000.

With Smith keen to revamp his squad, and the striker wanting regular playing time, could this be a done deal?
