Coventry defender Craig Pead has secured a two-year contract with League One Walsall.
The 23-year-old arrived at the Bescot Stadium on loan from Coventry in March and helped the Saddlers enjoy a strong end to the season.
"I am delighted to have signed for the club," Pead told the club's website.
"I thoroughly enjoyed my time here at the end of the season and wanted to make the move permanent. Hopefully we can maintain our standards."
