We understand from many creditable journalists that Coventry City have now joined the race with Bristol Rovers to sign wantaway Walsall striker Amadou Bakayoko.

It is understood that Coventry City have matched our six figure valuation for Bakayoko (thought to be £200,000) and now Baka will now have to decide whether a move to Bristol Rovers or Coventry is more appealing.

He scored his first league goal for the Saddlers in our 3-2 win over Shrewsbury Town in 2016 – he was later sent off in that match.

During his one hundred and six appearances for the Saddlers, Baka scored eighteen goals. Seven of which came in cup competitions.

The fact that we can cash in on Bakayoko will give manager Dean Keates the chance to improve his squad should he wish to ahead of the transfer window closure on Thursday although Keates can still sign unattached players and loan signings until the end of August.
