Walsall boss Chris Hutchings has confirmed he is set to run the rule over free agent Aaron Lescott over the coming weeks.
Lescott is available on a free transfer after leaving Bristol Rovers at the end of last season.
As revealed by skysports.com last week, the versatile defender will link up with Walsall next week for pre-season training
"Aaron knows the game and has plenty of games under his belt so he's someone we're looking at," Hutchings told the Express & Star. "We're looking at utility players and we may have a look at him. He can play left-back, right-back and midfield at a push."
The Saddlers are also in the market for another goalkeeper to provide competition for recent recruit Jonny Brain.
"We are looking for another goalkeeper as well. We'd like someone slightly younger than Jonny, someone 20 to 21-years-old with a bit of pedigree behind them," Hutchings added.
"Someone who might not have had a chance to play an awful lot, as most Premier League and Championship clubs keep three goalkeepers on board. Hopefully we can get someone on a permanent deal, we will have a look at one or two and have some irons in the fire."
