Manager Adam Murray fought off competition to capture the signing of left-back Malvind Benning earlier this summer.
The 21-year-old, who was previously with Sky Bet League One side Walsall, featured on more than 50 occasions for Dean Smith’s team and also spent time on loan at York City last term.
Born in Sandwell, West Midlands, the youngster graduated through the academy ranks at the Banks Stadium and signed a professional contract in 2011.
After a loan spell at Evesham United, he made his professional debut for the Saddlers in November 2012 and continued to improve week-on-week.
He spent time on loan at York City in 2014/15 and made nine appearances in the Minstermen’s successful battle to stave off relegation.
