Walsall sign former Norwich City striker

Walsall have today signed Canadian international Simeon Jackson.

The striker has been between clubs in recent seasons, but has today signed a two year deal with the League One club.

The former Norwich City and Millwall frontman left Blackburn after his short term deal there expired, and no new contract was offered.

Jackson becomes Walsall’s ninth signing of the summer, as they bid to improve on last season’s third place finish in League One.

Speaking to the official Walsall website, Jackson spoke of the “great feeling” to have signed for the Saddlers.

“I’ve had a look around the place and there’s a really good vibe,” said the 29 year old.

Jackson paid homage to Walsall manager Jon Witney, stating the reason he signed was all down to him.

“He told me how much he wanted me here and the environment they’re looking to build and the philosophy of the club,” said Jackson.

“He outlined his plans for me, and for the club, and we managed to get a deal done.”

Simeon Jackson has played for a number of Football League clubs in his career.

He joined Gillingham in 2008, before a move to Norwich City, who he helped earn promotion to the Premier League.

He’s also enjoyed spells at Millwall, Barnsley and Coventry City, as well as the aforementioned time he spent at Blackburn Rovers.

Jackson outlined his playing style in a message to the Walsall fans.

He said; “I want to come here, play as many games as I can, score goals and cause defenders problems. I love playing on the shoulder, making runs and creating chances.”
