The attacking winger has penned a one-year deal at the Banks's Stadium which includes the option of a further 12 months.

Sawyers spent the back end of last season on loan with the Saddlers but only managed to register four brief substitute appearances.

Manager Dean Smith said: "Having had him here on loan at the end of last season, he is obviously a player that we know a lot about. He didn't get the minutes on the pitch during that time because of the good run we were on, but he is a player with a lot of potential.

"When he got released by Albion we invited him back here and since then he has displayed an excellent attitude and work-rate and has done well in his outings so far.

"I am pleased to be able to give him this opportunity and I look forward to helping to bring the best out of him."

Sawyers will likely get a run-out in Saturday's latest home pre-season friendly against Leeds.

The 21-year-old said: "This is a good opportunity for me. There is a nice mix of young and experienced players here and I have fitted in well.

"This is a nice environment to work and develop as a player. The gaffer has been good to me and I am looking forward to working with him and the rest of the coaching staff here.

"It was an easy decision to come here and I am determined to take the chance that has been given to me."

England call-up for Clyne

T

he 'where does it end' argument is an absurd one and completely misses the point of the Rooney Rule, which applies to all minorities. It doesn't force any team to appoint anyone, it merely requires them to interview at least one minority candidate.
