Bakayoko Extends Walsall Deal

Walsall striker Amadou Bakayoko has signed an extension to his contract which will keep him with the League One club until 2018.

The 20-year old, who graduated from the clubs apprenticeship scheme signed a one-year deal in May. His new deal also includes the option of the club extending his contract until 2019.

“I’m more confident in my ability than I ever have been. It’s not arrogance. I know I can go out there and do my thing now,” said Bakayoko.

The youngster has scored five goals this term despite starting in just 3 of his 15 appearances. He hit a hat-trick against Grimsby Town in the EFL Trophy in October and also scored against Shrewsbury Town on his full league debut.

“We’re really pleased with Ama,” said Walsall boss Jon Whitney.

“He’s a player who has always had great potential but he’s now shown he’s got the right work ethic and application to develop into a real asset.

“I went to see him a few times when he was on loan with Worcester City and he really stood out. He looked like a player who was a level above and he’s taken those attributes into the first team.”
