Nigeria prospect Dennis Adeniran has completed a loan move to Championship side Wycombe Wanderers from Everton.

Since joining the Goodison Park outfit in 2017 from Fulham, the midfielder has featured mainly for the club’s U23 side – scoring eight goals in 46 Premier League games.

However, in his bid to taste first-team action, he has been shipped to the Chairboys, who were promoted to the English second tier at the end of the last term.

Due to his qualities, manager Gareth Ainsworth brought him to South Bucks where he could feature in Saturday’s Championship fixture with Swansea City.

“Dennis is an exciting young talent who has all the attributes to become a really important player for us this season,” Ainsworth told the club website.

“He’s a really energetic, box-to-box midfielder, and comes here eager to learn and develop his game, which we believe he can do just like many other young loanees who’ve joined us early in their careers.

“We’ve had a few injury and suspension problems in the middle of the park so Dennis arrives at a key time and adds extra competition for places.”

At Adams Park, he will join Uche Ikpeazu, Fred Onyedima and Adebayo Akinfenwa while wearing the No. 24 jersey.

Meanwhile, the 21-year-old has taken to social media to express his delight at joining the Chairboys.

“Delighted to have joined Wycombe Wanderers. Such a great club going in the right direction, everyone has made me feel so welcomed, can’t wait to get going,” Adeniran wrote on Instagram.

At Craven Cottage, the Anglo-Nigerian became Fulham’s youngest-ever scorer, netting on his senior debut in a League Cup victory in 2016 as his team defeated Leyton Orient 3-2 at the Breyer Group Stadium.

On the international scene, he represented England U17s in the European Championships in 2016, before going ahead to feature for the Young Lions at U18 and U19 level.

Born to Nigerian parents in Southwark, he is also eligible to play for three-time African champions at senior level.

Wycombe are 23rd in the English second tier log with zero points from two games following defeats to Rotherham United and Blackburn Rovers.
