The road leading away from the Bescot Stadium is becoming exceed-ingly well beaten, particularly after yesterday's developments which saw Matty Fryatt and Julian Bennett leave the club.
Bennett will finalise the details of his move from Walsall to Nottingham Forest today but former team-mate Matty Fryatt has already confirmed his departure to Forest's East Midlands rivals Leicester City just before close of business yesterday.
Fryatt has moved for an undisclosed fee, thought to be around the £300,000 mark, and signed a three-and-a-half year contract.
The 19-year-old, who has scored 14 goals in all competitions this term, is a product of the Walsall youth system having progressed from the Centre of Excellence through to the first-team level.
In addition to the basic transfer fee for the England Under-19 International, there will be numerous additional payments based on the player's achievements and in the event of Leicester City gaining promotion. Walsall will also receive a share of the profit should Fryatt be sold on.
Nuneaton-born Fryatt has made a total of 55 starts for the Saddlers in all competitions, plus 23 outings as a substitute, during which time he has scored 30 goals.
Manager Paul Merson has also agreed to sell defender Bennett to League One rivals Forest after accepting a bid believed to be in the region of £350,000.
The 21-year-old is a centre-back by choice but has spent much of the current term filling in at left-back due to Walsall's injury problems.
The move is something of a homecoming for the Nottingham-born Bennett and should go through if a medical and discussions over personal terms go smoothly today.
