“I’m delighted to be able come here and show what I can do,” he said.
“I like to defend, keep clean sheets and I’m here to do that.
“I’ve had a few conversations with the manager about where he thinks I can get to and how I can help the team and everything he said has been really positive so I’m happy to be here.
Saddlers boss Darrell Clarke was pleased to be able add more strength in depth to his defence and is looking forward to working with the former Bolton man.
