Romaine Sawyers has signed a new deal to stay at Walsall until summer 2016, BBC Sport reports.

The 22-year-old has enjoyed a fantastic season with some impressive displays and seven goals.. He joined Walsall on a permanent basis from West Bromwich Albion during the summer having spent the final part of the previous campaign on loan at the League One club.

After coming through the ranks at The Hawthorns, he found himself on the way to joining the first-team before making the switch to the Saddlers.

“It’s been a long, hard season for him and he has made good progress. I expect him to continue going from strength-to-strength and I am delighted that he has signed this new deal," Walsall boss Dean Smith said.

Smith, who is not expected to bring in many new faces in the summer, also added: “I believe that he is a player with a lot of potential who has a big role to play in the future of this club."

Walsall fans will be happy to see the midfielder commit his future to the club after they lost key players such as Will Grigg and Jamie Paterson last season and it considered possible that they could set to lose others including lead goalscorer Craig Westcarr in the coming months.

Victory in Saturday's final home game against Colchester United would ensure another top-half finish for Smith's side, however.
