Mat Sadler on Walsall's 'Collaborative Approach' to Transfers

Sadler was speaking at his official unveiling on Wednesday morning.
Bescot Banter - Walsall FC NewsWalsall head coach Mat Sadler has insisted he will have the final say on transfers before admitting Matt Jordan and other members of the Trivela Group will also have an input.

Jordan, a former goalkeeper who had spells as technical director in the MLS with the likes of Montreal Impact and Houston Dynamo, is Trivela's vice-president of global football, and will be working closely with the gaffer.

Sadler, who was recently named as the man to replace Michael Flynn in the dugout at Poundland Bescot Stadium, has been tasked with rebuilding the Saddlers squad ahead of the 2023/24 campaign.

The experienced former defender went on to confirm that there would be a "collaborative approach" to recruitment, with the club's ownership hoping to use their network of contacts in order to assist Sadler in adding to his squad.

Speaking to BBC WM reporter Daz Hale, Mat said; "I get the final say on transfers. But what will be very, very different is that it will be a process that we will collaborate on.

"I'll work really closely with Matt Jordan and the rest of the board will have their input. What's extremely refreshing about the way we want to work is that collaborative process.

"That's been, from day one, how I want to work. There will be a lot more work together. It won't just be a manager choosing who they want to come into the building or highlighting through a network that they have.

"Our tentacles are spreading a little bit wider than that. It will be a collaborative approach of how we decide on players."
