Exciting winger who returned to the club in the summer, signing a one-year deal, with a one-year option.

The 24-year-old enjoyed a hugely successful loan spell with the Saddlers last season, scoring three goals in 20 appearances and producing a series of dynamic displays.

Born in Albania, the former England youth international came through Wolves’ youth ranks and made his senior debut in a League Cup tie at Chelsea in September 2012.

He played 12 first-team matches at Molineux and enjoyed loan spells at MK Dons, Notts County, Oxford, Cambridge and Burton, where he reached the 2014 League Two play-off final.

Signed by Bury in June 2016, the dangerous attacker was loaned to Walsall last summer and became a fans’ favourite during his time at the Banks’s.

He returned to his parent club in January for the remainder of the 2017/18 season and amassed 41 appearances for the Shakers in total.
