Following the news that Walsall had broken their long-standing transfer record to sign Anorthosis Famagusta forward Andreas Makris on a three-year deal, First-Team manager Jon Whitney has spoken to club journalists and welcomed the 20-year-old, Cyprus international to the team.

Speaking via Saddlers.co.uk, Jon said; "I became aware of him last year when he was playing for Cyprus with Jason (Demetriou). When I was looking at some of the footage from the medical side of things I noticed him and started to profile him back then and asking Jason what he was like as a character and a person.

"He's had a lot of interest over the years. He made his professional debut at an early age and went on to become a full international so he's got good experience for a 20 year old.

"I wanted to get a striker in who has got potential and someone we can develop over the next three years and I can see him really fitting in with the clubs philosophy.

"He fits in to the profile we look for in the forward areas and he can play as a number nine or out on either wing. He's got a great energy about him, an eye for goal and has a good tactical awareness which is important for how we play.

"Fundamentally he has a hunger to come and play and it's great that he has decided that Walsall Football Club are the best option to help him fulfil his potential."
