Armand Gnanduillet has signed a new one-year contract to remain at Chesterfield.

The striker, 23, was offered fresh terms last month by new manager Dean Saunders, who has spoken of the need to bolster his attacking options.

And, having already persuaded Drew Talbot to sign up to a new deal just last week, Saunders was 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 joined Chesterfield in January 2013 and was part of the League Two title winning side that also made it to a Wembley final in the JPT.

He has often been used from the substitutes’ bench during his time at the Proact, scoring 14 goals in a total of 87 appearances.
