The 25-year-old finished last season on loan at Dagenham after Maidstone furloughed their playing squad.

With his Stones contract up, the Gambian player had a number of options but Chesterfield have their man.

Manager James Rowe told his club website: "We are pleased that Saidou has chosen us over a number of other options.

"As some fans would have seen in our fixture versus Dagenham last season, he is an all-round midfielder who will get people excited when he picks up the ball.
