Walsall Saw Peterborough Defender Loan Bid Fail as Player Opted to Stay

Walsall reportedly made a failed bid to land a right-back on loan earlier this summer.
According to reports first published by the Peterborough Telegraph, Walsall recently made a bid to sign Peterborough United defender Jason Naismith on loan but the 26-year-old right-back rejected the move.

Naismith, a former St. Mirren and Ross County defender spent last season on loan to Scottish Premiership side Hibernian, making fourteen appearances during an injury-hit spell.

Born in Paisley, Jason is a product of the St. Mirren youth system, a club where he went on to make over one-hundred first-team appearances whilst also enjoying loan spells with Greenock Morton and Cowdenbeath.

Transfer-listed players George Boyd and Jason Naismith have attracted little interest so far. League Two side Walsall wanted Naismith on loan, but the player is not keen on the move.

Joining Ross County in the January 2017, Naismith made almost sixty first-team appearances before joining Peterborough United some eighteen months later.

Making fifty first-team appearances during his first season at London Road Naismith joined Hibs last September and remained with the club until the end of the truncated campaign.

It is not known why the transfer listed defender turned down the opportunity to join the Saddlers, however, the recent form of Cameron Norman means the club is far from weak at right-back.
