Keates Playing The Waiting Game as Transfer Target Considers His Options

Walsall manager Dean Keates has spoken to the local press and offered an update on his search for new a recruit, revealing that there is still a possibility of making a new signing over the coming days and weeks, but is refusing to reveal too much as the deal may not happen.

Walsall-born Keates, who strengthened his squad over the summer by signing players such as Andy Cook, Morgan Ferrier, and Josh Ginnelly, continues to insist that the player he is chasing would be a coup for the club, but insists that he simply has to be patient as the potential new arrival has other options to consider.

Speaking via the Express & Star, Dean said; "There is still a possibility we could bring someone in. Last week I did think ‘Yes’, I thought we were about 80 per cent there. But it’s still a waiting game for us.

"If you’re talking to a player who has got a chance of joining a Championship team – they have to consider that, there is a chance we won’t be top of their list.

"It’s someone I know and without giving too much away it’s someone I have a good relationship with. All being well that can play a part in it."

Keates then went on to insist that the as-yet unnamed player will be fit to play, despite missing the opening two months of the season, he continued; "I know the player and I know what he’s about, he is a professional. I’d go as far to say there won’t be a better professional in the country."
