Walsall have bolstered their defence by signing experienced centre-half Donervon Daniels until the end of the season.

The 28-year-old joins the Saddlers having had his contract terminated at League One side Crewe Alexandra.

He made 31 appearances over 18 months with Crewe and has also had spells at Wigan Athletic, Blackpool and Luton Town – after progressing through the youth ranks at Albion.

Daniels' switch is subject to EFL ratification, but should they get the go-ahead as expected, he is likely to go straight into Walsall's side for tomorrow's clash with Bradford City.

Fellow centre-halves Rollin Menayese and Manny Monthe are both serving suspensions.

New man Daniels won the League One title while at Wigan and featured in the Championship for them, Blackpool and Luton.

He said on signing for the Saddlers: "I’m really happy to finally get the deal done and delighted to get it over the line.

“I want to come in and play games, and I see it as a real opportunity to get games under my belt and help Walsall have a solid end to the season.

“I have really strong leadership qualities. The way I play on the ball, I like to think I’m a really good ball carrier, good passer of the ball and I like to control the team."

Daniels added: "I feel like I can bring a whole host of qualities to the squad and the dressing room. I just want to get in and help the boys and help myself achieve.”
