Walsall have signed former Bury forward Ashley Grimes on a one-year deal.

The 27-year-old failed to score in 18 Shakers appearances last term and left the League Two side by mutual consent just 12 months into a two-year deal.

Grimes previously played for Rochdale and Millwall, having started as a Manchester City trainee.

"Hopefully this move will reignite him so that he can reach the levels that I know he is capable of," Saddlers boss Dean Smith told the club website.

"He has fantastic technical ability and is one of the best finishers that I have seen. He will complement the way we play."
