Bakayoko joined Worcester Cty, on a one–month loan deal on 15 January 2016 and scored three league goals in the National League North, for the club.

He scored his first goals for Walsall when he scored a hat-trick in an EFL Trophy tie against Grimsby Town on 30 August 2016. He scored his first league goal in a 3–2 win over Shrewsbury Town on 15 October 2016, although he was later sent off in the same match.
