Walsall Football Club's Chief Executive Stefan Gamble has spoken to the Express & Star's Saddlers reporter Joseph Masi and insisted that the club does not need to sell players in order to balance the books.

Speaking via ExpressandStar.com, Stefan said; “We certainly don’t need to sell players to balance the books. Of course, we want to hold on to our best players. Inevitably, players will move on but only when our valuation has been met and we as a board feel it is in the best interests of the club.

“As always, when players are sold, 50 per cent goes straight into the playing budget. The other 50 per cent goes into the infrastructure of the club. Whether that’s into our academy, or our facilities we always do it on a sustainable basis.

“We’ll provide the manager with as much support and resource as possible but at the same time we won’t risk the long-term future of the club by being irresponsible with our finances.”
