A determined and skillful midfielder, Kouhyar joined the Saddlers in April 2013, aged 15, following his release by Coventry.

He made his first-team bow as a substitute in a 2-0 league defeat at Chesterfield in August 2016 before scoring on his full debut against Grimsby later that month.

He made a total of seven appearances for Walsall in 2016/17 and also received his first international call-up by Afghanistan.

Kouhyar featured on 21 occasions last term and scored his first league goal in a 1-1 draw at Rochdale.
