Walsall have signed striker Ryan Jarvis on a one-year deal.

The 24-year-old, who was at Leyton Orient last season, began his career at Norwich and made his debut for the Canaries against Walsall at the Banks's Stadium.

Jarvis became the East Anglian club's youngest-ever player when, aged 16 years and 282 days, he featured in a goalless draw in April 2003.


Jarvis told Walsall's official website: "I'm very happy to be here. I've worked with (manager) Dean (Smith) before so it's good to join up with him again. He's done a good job here so far.

"I just want to play regular first-team football again. Last year was not good for me, so I just want to get myself in the team and help us push on to where the manager wants us to be.

"I've played a lot of football at League One level over the years, so hopefully I can put my experience to good use here."
