Walsall boss Dean Smith has already decided which of his out-of-contract players will be offered new deals in the summer and who will be told they have no future at the club.

The likes of David Grof, Jimmy Walker, Manny Smith, Anton Peterlin and Emmanuel Ledesma are among those whose terms are set to expire, but Smith was adamant over first securing npower League One safety with just two matches remaining.

Smith told the Express & Star: "I know already but that's for me to sit down with them when the time is right. I want to be safe before I sit down and talk to them - and that's as much their job as it is mine."

He added: "Their job is to get the points we need to give us League One security. Once they do that, I can sit down and start chatting to them."
