Walsall have signed goalkeeper Tommy Simkin on a season-long loan from Stoke.

The 19-year-old England youth international moves to his hometown club ahead of the new League Two season.

He spent the first half of last season on loan at National League side Solihull Moors before another loan in January to Forest Green.

"I am a local lad and I think it is brilliant to come to this football club and try and play as many games as I can," Simkin told the club website.
