Forde swaps Wolves for Walsall

Walsall manager Dean Smith has bolstered his attacking options with the capture of winger Anthony Forde from Wolves.

The 20-year-old has been training with the Saddlers and puts pen to paper on a two-year contract after an agreement was reached with Wanderers.

Smith told the club's official website: "Anthony is a player who came in to train with us a few weeks ago. He is someone that I noted when we played against Wolves in a friendly and we have kept tabs on him ever since."

Forde is not available for the Saddlers' clash with Southend on Tuesday night but will be in contention to make his debut against Bradford on Saturday.
