“I’m delighted to join the club and I’m excited by the challenge,” he said.

“It’s a great club and a stable club that is pushing forward.

“I want to play as many games as I can and show what I can do.

“I’ve played in this stadium a couple of times and I feel like we have a good group here, everyone is ready to kick on and I can’t wait to get going.”

Saddlers boss Darrell Clarke has also welcomed the addition of Osadebe.  

“We’re really pleased to add Emmanuel to the squad,” he commented.

“He has the ability to play in a variety of roles in the attacking third and he will give us extra impetus going forward.”

Osadebe will wear the number 23 shirt.
