BT Sport has revealed another couple of big signings to its team of football pundits – Ian Wright and Robbie Savage.

They join the growing roster of football legends already on BT Sport's books, including Jose Mourinho, and Paul Scholes.

The service has also extended its deal with Arsenal football club.

Wright was part of ITV's team of pundits at the 2014 Brazil World Cup. He'll offer his expert insights on Barclays Premier League and FA Cup matches.

Savage will co-host a new show on Saturday mornings called 'Matchday Live with Fletch & Sav'. Savage and Darren Fletcher will host the show live from the grounds every Saturday starting at 10am, and will discuss the biggest stories of the day, as well as the build-up to the day's matches in the UK, Europe and beyond.

"Ian and Robbie have proved themselves to be hugely popular pundits with football fans across the country and we are delighted to add them to our growing team of analysts," Grant Best, senior channel executive producer of BT Sport, said in a statement.

"'Matchday Live with Fletch & Sav' is the perfect build-up to the football weekend hosted by true football fans and special guests, features and the entertaining chemistry and unpredictability you'd expect from the pair. Fans should stick with BT Sport through Saturdays for their sporting updates with 'Matchday Live'."

The season kicks off tomorrow on BT Sport at 12:45pm, with Louis van Gaal's first game as manager of Manchester United. Sky Sports owns the rights to 43 live Barclays Premier League matches, while BT Sport will show 12.
