Chesterfield have secured striker Armand Gnanduillet on a new one-year contract.

Having already persuaded Drew Talbot, who was also out of contract, to sign a fresh deal, new manager Dean Saunders is delighted to have agreed terms with Gnanduillet.

Saunders said: "I'm really pleased. He's a big, strong young lad and he's got the tools to be a really good player. I think I can help him, providing he's got the desire and he wants to listen and take on the information. He has got all the attributes and he can go on and play at the highest level.

"He is the type of player we need as an option, to keep the ball in the box. When we put the ball in, he is a presence. I know he can score - we just have to make sure he gets in the right places."

Gnanduillet has mainly featured as a substitute since joining the Spireites after a spell on trial two-and-a-half years ago. The 23-year-old Ivorian has made 30 league starts for Chesterfield, scoring 12 goals. He had spells on loan at Tranmere Rovers and Oxford United last season.
