Darrell Clarke Confirms Walsall Working on Extending Key Contracts

Darrell Clarke is keen to extend the contracts of several of his soon-to-be-free-agent players.
Walsall manager Clarke has confirmed the club is already in talks to extend the contracts of several of his first-team players as they enter the final few months pf their current deals.

As the January Transfer Window is now open and the vast majority of the current crop is out of contract in the summer, the manager is keen to secure the futures of some of his key men.

Although the Mansfield-born manager continues to play his cards close to his chest, he has revealed that discussions have been ongoing with players as they aim to get some of them signed up to new deals.

With the majority of his squad, including the likes of Dan Scarr, Liam Kinsella, and Josh Gordon set to become free agents in the summer the manager is going to have his work cut out if he is to retain the team ahead of the 2021/22 campaign.

Speaking to the Express & Star's Liam Keen, Darrell said; "We want to keep hold of our best players but every player has a price, it’s just the way the world goes. That process is always in place.

"I’m not going to come out and say we’re doing this, you guys will be first to hear when something is being agreed. It’s not that discussions haven’t been ongoing with certain players for a period of time – not just January.

"We’ll keep working away and chipping away at that. You always want to keep your best players at the football club. We want to do that and develop them and try to progress through the pyramid."
