Walsall striker Troy Deeney has signed a new deal at the club.

The highly-rated 21-year-old has penned a two-year extension to keep him at the League One outfit.

Deeney, who scored 12 goals last season, was delighted to resolve his future and is focused on getting off the mark this season after hitting a blank so far.

"I am very pleased to have my immediate future sorted out," Deeney told the club's official website..

"Having just become a father, this was important to me and now I just want to concentrate on my football and progress.

"It's time for me to start scoring goals now. Things are looking good for us; we've got a solid base on which to build and have some good young local lads coming through, which is good for the club and good for the youth lads coming through.

"My aim is to be top scorer for the next two years. I want to get my first of the season and then kick on from there."
