Keates Looking to Build Strong Foundations With Permanent Signings

10:00 am Saturday, 19 May 2018  
Walsall manager Dean Keates has revealed that he is keen to make permanent signings over the summer as he looks to strengthen the atmosphere in the dressing room following a season of struggle, which saw the team battle towards the bottom of the table for much of the campaign.
Walsall-born Keates, who is set to go through his first pre-season as Saddlers boss, admitted that he may land a couple of loan signings but is keen to add predominantly permanent signings to his squad as he believes it makes for a strong dressing room atmosphere.

The Saddlers signed nine players on loan last season, and while he may dip into the loan market, the 39-year-old former midfielder is keen to add players who rely on the club as they often give more for the club than their temporary teammates.

Speaking via the Express & Star, Dean said; "I want permanent signings first and foremost. I have to make our changing room and football club as strong as it can possibly be. The best way of doing that is to bring our own players in. First and foremost, we are looking at permanent deals. But there are one or two possible loans I might do quite early."
