1094 Hakeeb Adelakun

Biography

Rangy attacking midfielder Hakeeb Adelakun joined the Tigers on a season long loan in late September 2020 and immediately made a positive impression with an assist in his first game, a 2-0 win at Northampton, and a goal in his second game a week later, a 1-0 win over Plymouth.

Born in Hackney, East London to parents of Nigerian descent, Adelakun was on the books of Crystal Palace and West Ham United as a schoolboy but at the age of 16 he took the somewhat unlikely path for a 21st century London boy and joined Scunthorpe United. He made his Iron debut in December 2012 and between 2013 and 2018 he was a first team regular for five seasons, amassing 169 senior appearances and scoring 19 goals. His Scunthorpe contract expired during the 2018 close season and in July 2018 he signed for Bristol City on a three year deal. Hakeeb found first team chances few and far between at Ashton Gate and in two seasons he played in only five senior matches for the Robins, plus nine games on loan at Rotherham in early 2020, prior to joining the Tigers for the 2020/21 season.
