Lewis, 19, has impressed Saddlers boss Dean Smith during his trial period and has been rewarded with a two-year deal.

The West Brom academy graduate goes straight into the squad for Saturday's season opener against Tranmere.

"He has impressed during his time with us so far," Smith told the club's official website. "He's an up-and-coming talent who we will be able to develop and fits the bill of what we are looking for in terms of attitude, temperament and attributes."

Lewis added: "This is a good move for me. It's nice to finally have things sorted and be at a well-run local club where I feel that I can really progress.

"The target is obviously to push Richard O'Donnell as much as I can and develop. It's a good opportunity for me to prove what I am capable of."

think that puts all doubts over Benteke's quality to bed. Can he do it after receiving the ball to feet, in the box, totally unmarked, on a warm, sunny afternoon in Swindon? Oh yes he can! This year is definitely Liverpool's year. YNWA.

ll very well selling all midfield and strikers but unless we bring anyone in that is better than what we had then it will be a terrible transfer window in my view. Sorted out the defense but our midfield and striker options look very light.

ove it when Jose accuses others of being defensive, cynical and playing to win. If I was Wenger, I'd get that quote laminated and framed - surely the biggest compliment he's ever received from Mourinho. You've got him riled Arsene - you're relevant again!
