Richard Taundry has signed a new one-year deal at League One Walsall.
Full-back Taundry came up through the Saddlers' youth academy and made 40 appearances last season.
He was out of contract this summer and although he considered a move elsewhere, the 23-year-old opted to stay with his hometown club.
"It was a big decision for him to go on the transfer list and a big decision to then agree to a new deal," manager Dean Smith told the
"He had a look around but felt that it was in his best interests to commit to Walsall.
"Everyone knows that he is a local lad who is full of commitment and desire and I'm looking forward to working with him again".
