Former Wanderers striker Amadou Bakayoko has joined Scottish Premiership side Dundee on a season-long loan.

Bakayoko left the Whites during the January window to join Forest Green, who were relegated from League One last season.

The 27-year-old heads north of the border to join Dundee, who clinched the Scottish Championship last term.

“I am delighted to be able to come and play for this club in the Scottish Premiership and I am looking forward to the challenges ahead,” he told the club website.

“I am looking forward to working with the manager and coaching staff. It is always nice to be wanted and I will give my best to the club the fans and myself.”

Bakayoko scored 17 goals in 67 appearances for Wanderers after joining from Coventry in the summer of 2021.

The striker has also won six caps for Sierra Leone, having made his international debut during his time at Bolton.

Manager Tony Docherty added: “Amadou is someone that we feel we have been monitoring all summer and was someone that came to our attention through our contacts down South.

“At 27, he is a player who is hungry. He did really well in terms of his overall play and goal scoring whilst at Coventry and Bolton.

“We’ve had him up and he’s looked round the facilities, as he had other suitors in England but he has decided that he wants to come to Scotland and join us.

We want to have a blend of strikers at the club, what Amadou will bring is his physicality, he’s a very good link player and good with his back to goal.

“We feel he will complement the existing strikers that we already have at the club. He’s a target man who is big and strong and will link the play.”
