Hardworking striker finished as Walsall's top goalscorer with 12 goals in the 2019-20 season.

Gordon joined the club from Leicester City in 2018, scoring nine times during his first campaign. 

The 25-year-old spent eight years with hometown Stoke before taking in spells with non-league clubs Newcastle Town, Nantwich Town and Stafford Rangers, as well as Welsh side Rhyl.

He landed a dream move to Leicester in April 2017 and scored six goals in 27 Premier League 2 matches for their Under-23s in 2017/18.

Gordon featured against Valencia and Lille in pre-season for the Foxes but was allowed to join the Saddlers on a three-year deal for an undisclosed fee in August 2018.

He broke his duck for the Saddlers in an EFL Cup tie with Macclesfield and ended the campaign strongly with five goals in 12 outings.

After going 15 games without a goal, Gordon finished the 2019-20 season strongly with 12 in his next 25 matches, including a hat-trick in the 6-0 Leasing.com Trophy victory over Forest Green.
