A host of Championship and League One clubs are readying moves for Walsall defender Liam Kinsella on a free transfer this summer with the club yet to offer him a new deal, HITC Sport understands from sources close to the club.

Kinsella is out of contract at the end of the season at Walsall and his suitors are actively monitoring his situation at the Banks's Stadium knowing he could be available on a free transfer.

 

The 22-year-old, who is the son of former Republic of Ireland international Mark Kinsella, has come through the ranks at Walsall and established himself as a key player in the side under Dean Keates.

The right-back, who can also play in defensive midfield as well as right wing, has made 26 appearances in all competitions for Walsall so far this season, scoring one goal and creating two assists.
