Walsall have taken former Wolverhampton Wanderers full back Lee Naylor on trial, with the 35-year-old on the team sheet for the Walsall reserves match against Port Vale today, according to Vital Football.
Walsall are Naylor’s home-town club, but he made his name seven miles down the road at Wolverhampton, where the full-back made 293 appearances for Wolves, where he was a vital component of the team that gained promotion to the Premier League in 2002-03 via the play-offs.
Despite relegation, Naylor was a regular in the Wolves team for the next two seasons in the Championship, before moving to Celtic.
Naylor was a big success at Parkhead, making 100 appearances across a four-year spell with the Bhoys, where he won the league and cup double in his first season and appeared in the Champions League, as well as scoring in the Old Firm clash against Rangers.
Upon the expiration of his contract at Celtic in 2010 , Naylor moved to Cardiff on a free transfer, before being released in 2012 and having spells at both Accrington Stanley and Derby County before becoming a free agent again this summer.
Naylor is reportedly regaining match fitness at the Banks’s stadium, with a view to a short term deal with Dean Smith’s side, who play Doncaster next in the league at home on Saturday.
