The 30-year-old defender has been offered a new deal by the Saddlers after making 39 appearances for the club last season.

But it’s understood he could be set to reject their offer in favour of a move to Bloomfield Road after talks took place earlier this week.

Boss Gary Bowyer is desperate to add experience to his back-four and is in need of a left-back after summer departures of David Ferguson and Charles Dunne.
