Highly Rated Adeyemo Ready To Challenge Success and Ighalo For First Team Spot At Watford

21 year old Nigerian forward Ola Adeyemo who is on the books of English Premiership side Watford says before the end of next season he has his sight on the first team where he could challenge Nigerian pair of Odion Ighalo and Isacc Success.

The six feet inch forward joined the team in March on a free transfer after mutually terminating his deal with Dundee United in December after just two appearances for the Scottish Premiership team.

Adeyemo who also played for League Two side East Fife without a goal to his name in nine games joined Watford after a successful trial where he distinguished himself for the Harry Kewell tutored side.

“I’ve settled in well, I’ve been here a few months now and I’m enjoying it, working with a personality like Harry Kewell has improved me a lot and hopefully I will break into the first team next season if I do well with the Under-20s” He said.

Adeyemo is eligible to represent Nigeria, Republic of Ireland and England but he his yet to be called up by any of the nations.
