Coventry City have signed striker Amadou Bakayoko from League One rivals Walsall for an undisclosed fee.

The 22-year-old has agreed a two-year contract with the Sky Blues.

Bakayoko was left out of the squad for Walsall's win against Plymouth on Saturday after the Saddlers accepted a transfer bid for the target man.

He scored eight goals in 47 appearances in all competitions last season, and becomes Coventry's 11th signing of the summer transfer window.
