New signing at Bristol City, Hakeeb Adelakun has disclosed that he cherishes the deal that sees him move to the lower division English Championship side, and is already thinking of bringing his talent to bear in action with The Robins.
Adelakun had attracted interest from clubs in the Premier League and Championship but Bristol City have won the race for his signature, and the 22-year-old says he is happy to pen a three-year deal that will keep him at Bristol until the end of the 2020-2021 season.
Adelakun started off his career with the youth team of Crystal Palace and played for West Ham Academy before he was acquired by Scunthorpe United in 2012.
He joins another young Nigerian striker, Kel Akpobire, who inked his first professional contract with Bristol City in April 2018.
Adelakun said: ”I think I am ready for a new challenge. Hopefully I can take it in my stride and I am ready to learn more and just go at it.
”I am an attacking player, who is quite versatile. I create a lot of chances and hopefully I can get supporters off their seats.
”I will look to add something new to the team through my flair and directness. I like to get at defenders, create chances and score goals, so hopefully I can keep that up.”
