Striker completes his move from Walsall...

7 August 2018

Coventry City are delighted to confirm the signing of Amadou Bakayoko from Walsall for an undisclosed fee.

The striker puts pen-to-paper on a two year-deal with the Sky Blues and will now link-up with his new team mates ahead of the trip to AFC Wimbledon this weekend.

The 22 year-old has risen through the ranks with the Saddlers, coming through the academy to earn his first professional contract at 18.

After spells on loan with Southport, Telford and Worcester, Bakayoko returned to Walsall for the 2016/17 League One season, where he would go on to win the Saddlers Young Player of the Year award.

Mark Robins had this to say about his latest signing: "We are delighted that Adamou has agreed to join us. We were aware that there was significant interest in him from other clubs, and are very pleased he has chosen to join Coventry City.

"Amadou is a young, talented footballer who has great pace and power. We are looking forward to working with him and improving his game further.

"We needed more at the top end of the pitch and Adamou gives us that, and I’m sure he will become a fans’ favourite."
