Exclusive: Championship and League One clubs register interest in signing 26-y/o



Former Walsall midfielder, Luke Leahy is a target for a number of Championship and League One clubs, a source close to the player has exclusively revealed to Football League World. 

Leahy has missed one game in two seasons with Walsall, but was released in the summer, after his contract came to an end.

The source claims that the 26-year-old has held talks with a number of clubs in League One and League Two, although it remains to be seen as to where he’ll be heading before the new season gets underway.

Leahy is also on the radar of a number of Championship clubs, although it is yet to be confirmed as to which teams are tracking the midfielder.

He started his professional career with Scottish side, Falkirk, and made 158 appearances in total, after making his debut for the club in 2012.

Leahy spent five seasons with the club, and his impressive performances evidently didn’t go unnoticed, as Walsall signed him shortly after he was released from Falkirk.

He also scored three goals in each season with the League One side, but was unable to stop them from being relegated into League Two.

In total, he was on hand to provide 18 assists during his two-year spell with Walsall, and he’ll be keen to have his long-term future resolved at the earliest of opportunities with preparations for the new season already underway.

The Saddlers will be hoping to return to League One at the first time of asking, but they’ll have to do it without Leahy, who will be playing his football elsewhere, although it remains to be seen as to where his next destination will be.
