Butterfield offered new deal at Walsall

Kacy Milan Butterfield's impressive form for the Walsall Development Squad has been rewarded with a new deal at the Sky Bet League One side.

The 19-year-old is among several players whose contracts expire next month to have been given a chance to extend their stay at the Banks's Stadium.

First-team captain Adam Chambers, goalkeeper Liam Roberts, defender Matt Preston and youngster Rory Oliver are the others to have been offered new contracts.

“We are also continuing to talk to the players we have offered new contacts to as well,” Jon Whitney, the Walsall manager, said.

“Some of them are getting close to finalisation now. So we should have some good news on that in the not-to-distant future as well.”

Butterfield scored in Walsall's 3-1 win at home to Stafford Rangers in the Walsall Senior Cup final earlier this month.

The defensive midfielder also played key role in Bermuda Under-20's Caribbean Championship qualifiers in Curaçao in October last year and the next round of the competition, the Concacaf Championship, in Costa Rica in February.

He signed a one-year deal with the Black Country outfit last summer after being recommended for a trial by Kyle Lightbourne, a former Walsall fans' favourite.

Butterfield spent three months on trial at Premier League side Bournemouth at the start of last season.
