Sylvan Ebanks-Blake joins Chesterfield

Former Wolves and Preston striker Sylvan Ebanks-Blake becomes Dean Saunders's first signing as Chesterfield manager.

Chesterfield have completed the signing of former Wolverhampton Wanderers striker Sylvan Ebanks-Blake.

The 29-year-old joins the Spireites following his release by Preston North End at the end of last season.

Ebanks-Blake is Dean Saunders's first signing as Chesterfield boss and previously played under the Welshman at Molineux.

"Sylvan is just what the team needs," Saunders told the club's official website. "He's strong and when the ball comes into the box, he's where it should be. He's hungry to play and he wants to be part of a winning team."

Ebanks-Blake scored one goal in 13 appearances for Preston during the 2014-15 campaign.
