Walsall have today confirmed the permanent signing of Leicester City striker Josh Gordon on a three year deal for an undisclosed fee.

The 23-year-old joined Leicester from Northern Premier Division side Stafford Rangers in April 2017, after impressing on trial at the King Power Stadium.

Gordon was a regular for Leicester’s Under-23 side last season, scoring six goals in 27 games in Premier League 2, but he has yet to break into Claude Puel’s first-team plans.

Following the departure of Amadou Bakayoko (to Coventry City) Walsall boss Dean Keates has been looking to improve his attacking options with only youngsters Dylan Parker and Mitch Candlin available behind first teamers Andy Cook and Morgan Ferrier.

Gordon can also play wide left as well as upfront so will add cover on the wing should the Saddlers suffer any injury problems with Kieron Morris, Josh Ginnelly or Zeli Ismail.

Everyone at Vital Walsall welcomes Josh to the club and wish him the best of luck during his spell here.
