Walsall have completed the permanent signing of Forest Green Rovers forward Jamille Matt, who arrives at Poundland Bescot Stadium on an 18-month contract, for an undisclosed fee.

33-year-old Matt adds plenty of much-needed experience to the Saddlers' attack, with the well-travelled attacker set to lead the line as Danny Johnson appears to be nearing a return to his parent club.

Saddlers Head Coach Michael Flynn has welcomed the news of Jamille's arrival, with the gaffer keen to work with a player he once managed at Newport County.

Speaking via the club's official website, Flynn said; "Jamille is completely different to what we’ve currently got, he’s proven at this level, he’s got a promotion from this level.

"He will fit in with the squad, he works hard off the ball and gives us different dimension at the top of the pitch. He’s a real handful.

"Once he gets up and running and training with the group, he’s only going to be a huge asset for us for not just for this season but for next season too.

"I’ve got a fantastic relationship with him, always kept in touch with him and I’m very pleased to have been able to bring him into the football club.

"I’d like to thank Trivela, Leigh Pomlett, Stef Gamble and Dan Mole for their assistance in getting this deal over the line. It’s not been straight-forward; I was hopeful of this deal going through earlier than it has done but Forest Green were helpful in the process too."
