DONE DEAL: Walsall sign Leicester striker Tyrese Shade

Walsall have made a 12th summer signing by bringing in striker Tyrese Shade from Premier League side Leicester.

Ex-Birmingham City academy player Shade has joined Matthew Taylor's League Two side on a season-long loan.

The St Kitts & Nevis Under-20 international, now 21, was at Solihull Moors before joining the Foxes in 2017.

Since then he has made six EFL Trophy appearances for Leicester's Under-21s, netting once, and scored seven times in the Under-23 Premier League 2.

New Saddlers head coach Taylor said: "It's been a protracted transfer.

"Tyrese is someone we identified early and we're really happy that we've managed to get the deal over the line. It's taken time.

"He's had a fantastic education football-wise with Leicester. He'll be a player that will excite the fans and take risks in the final third."
