Walsall goalkeeper David Grof looks set to depart the Banks's Stadium, after a series of poor performances and disagreements with management at the club.
Walsall's Hungarian goalkeeper David Gróf is set to depart the Banks's Stadium, in favour of a move to an un-named French side.

Despite beginning the season as first-choice, David was dropped to the bench following a series of poor performances, culminating in Walsall's 3-2 FA Cup defeat to Blue Square Bet Premier League side Lincoln City.

David has since been replaced in favour of a series of loan signings, it is believed his continued poor reaction to the demotion has pushed him further down the pecking order in recent weeks as youth 'keeper Liam Roberts has been the substitute for the last two matches.

In February Walsall manager Dean Smith sought to reassure Gróf of his future with the Saddlers however, it seems both sides have now agreed to part ways.

Following a brief trial spell, the former Hibernian and Notts County goalkeeper signed a one year Walsall contract in July 2011, and following over twenty first-team appearances during 2011/2012 he signed a one-year extension the following summer, however 23-year-old, Grof, has made just a handful of appearances for The Saddlers this season and is said to be keen to ply his trade elsewhere.

The Budapest born stopper, whose contract was due to expire in the summer, looks to have accepted an early termination in favour of a move to an as yet unnamed French club after flying to Paris to complete the deal earlier this afternoon.
