Walsall have completed the signing of Bradford City midfielder Yann Songo’o, who arrives at Poundland Bescot Stadium on loan for the remainder of the 2022/23 campaign.

31-year-old Songo'o has made sixty-three first-team appearances for the Bantams, scoring three goals, since he joined them in the summer of 2021 under then-manager Derek Adams.

He also worked under Adams at Morecambe during the 2020/21 campaign and played a key role, scoring six goals in 45 matches, to help the Shrimps win promotion to League One via the play-offs.

Songo’o began his career in Spain where he represented Real Zaragoza, Sabadell, and Pobla Mafumet. His next move took him to USA as he joined Sporting Kansas City in 2012.

A loan spell at Orlando City followed before he made his first foray into English Football when he moved to Blackburn Rovers August 2013.

He made one senior appearance at Ewood Park and spent time on loan at Ross County, where he first linked up with Adams.

In 2016, Songo’o joined Plymouth Argyle in League Two and helped them win promotion in his first season as the Pilgrims finished second.

He spent two more years at Home Park and played a total of 139 times for Argyle, then a year at Scunthorpe United followed before his subsequent moves to Morecambe and Bradford City.

Speaking via the club's official website, Head Coach Michael Flynn sought to welcome his latest signing to WS1, he said; "I’m delighted to bring Yann in and integrate him into the squad.

"He brings a wealth of experience in midfield and he’s won promotions out of this league. I’m looking forward to working with him until the end of the season."
