Walsall Linked With Forest Green Rovers Forward Jamille Matt

Walsall could be set to add to their ranks with a well-travelled striker.

According to recent media reports, both Walsall and Tranmere Rovers have had bids accepted for Forest Green Rovers striker Jamille Matt.

33-year-old Matt, who has scored just twice across twenty first-team appearances so far this season, began his career with clubs familiar to the Saddlers with the likes of Sutton Coldfield Town and Kidderminster Harriers providing him with a home ahead of a 2013 switch to Fleetwood Town.

As well as enjoying loan spells with Stevenage and Plymouth Argyle, Jamille made sixty-two appearances for the Cod Army before joining Blackpool in the summer of 2016 where a loan spell with Grimsby Town and just thirty-nine appearances would follow ahead of a transfer to Newport County.

Playing under current Walsall boss Michael Flynn, Matt would bag twenty-six goals over ninety-eight first-team appearances, including one against Leicester City in an FA Cup clash, something we'd be happy for him to repeat in a few weeks' time.

A move to Forest Green Rovers was next for the nomadic striker, with the 2021/22 captain netting thirty-seven goals across the two seasons before the current somewhat barren campaign.

Walsall and Forest Green are yet to acknowledge any details of a potential deal, with fans having to remain patient ahead of any potential reveal.
