Former Swindon Town winger Sofiene Zaaboub admits he is relaxed about his future.

The Frenchman moved to Walsall on a free transfer from the Robins a year ago and has been offered a new one-year deal by Town’s League One rivals.

The 26-year-old made 64 appearances for the Robins in two seasons and was then boss Paul Sturrock’s first signing for Town in November 2007.

But, despite being out of contract, Zaaboub insists he isn’t worried.

“I’m not scared about finding something because Walsall have already offered me one more year so we will talk when I get back,” he said.

“I’m away on holiday until the start of June and then I will sort my future out. I’m just thinking about things at the moment and I needed a holiday.”

Zaaboub made a good impression on Saddlers boss Chris Hutchings after he took over from the sacked Jimmy Mullen in January.

He made 31 appearances as Walsall finished 13th in League One, eight points but just two places, above Danny Wilson’s Robins.

He admitted he was still in talks with the Banks’s Stadium club and says working with former Wigan manager Hutchings is a strong reason to stay.

He said: “I don’t know about my future yet, my contract with Walsall has finished and I’m in talks with them. I’ve had a good season and I’ve enjoyed it more in the last six months under the new manager.

“He’s had a positive affect on me.”
