Walsall sign Burnley forward on Deadline Day

31 August 2017

Walsall Football Club are delighted to confirm the signing of Burnley forward Daniel Agyei on a six-month loan deal, subject to clearance.

Jon Whitney has bolstered his frontline with the addition of Agyei, who becomes our eighth signing of the summer transfer window.

The 20-year-old forward made his Premier League debut for The Clarets last season at Anfield in March, going on to play against Everton and Manchester United towards the end of the 2016/17 season.

At the beginning of the season, Agyei went out on loan to Coventry City, where he scored four goals in 12 league starts for the Sky Blues before returning to Turf Moor.

“He’s somebody we’ve been tracking over the summer,” said Whitney. 

“He’s really highly thought of at Burnley and he made his Premier League debut against Liverpool at Anfield last season. 

“He went out to Coventry last season and impressed there. He’s been highly sought after by several clubs but we have got the deal done. 

“He’s a really good addition and he’ll strengthen the squad. He’s got raw pace and power and he’s got goals in him as well.

"We're really pleased to get Daniel on board."
