Striker Febian Brandy joins League One side Walsall

Febian Brandy

Walsall have completed the signing of former Manchester United striker Febian Brandy following his trial period.

The former England Under-20 striker, 23, appeared in the Saddlers' goalless draw against AFC Telford on Tuesday.

And, after impressing manager Dean Smith, the free agent has joined the League One side on a permanent basis.

"He's lively with good pace, an undoubted talent who has unfulfilled potential, which we hope he will be able to fulfil here," said Smith.

"He will certainly offer us a different dimension and is a welcome addition."

Brandy began his career at Manchester United, but never played a first team game.

He had loan spells at Swansea, Hereford and Gillingham and, following his release from Old Trafford in August 2010, went on to play for Notts County.

From there he joined Greek top flight side Panetolikos earlier this year but left without making an appearance.
