Sierra Leone-born forward who was named the Saddlers' 2016/17 Young Player of the Season.

The powerful frontman impressed for Walsall at youth level and received his first professional contract during the 2013/14 season.

The tall forward was loaned out for experience, joining non-league sides Southport, Telford and Worcester.

He scored a hat-trick on his full Saddlers debut - a 5-2 Checkatrade Trophy victory over Grimsby in August 2016 - and went on to plunder a further seven goals that campaign.

Bakayoko spent last season as Walsall's first-choice striker, scoring eight goals in all competitions.
