COVENTRY City have strengthened their squad ahead of their season opener this weekend with the loan signing of wing-back Tayo Adaramola.
Adaramola joins on a season-long loan from Premier League side Crystal Palace and fills the void left by Ian Maatsen following the conclusion of his temporary spell last term.
The 18-year-old left wing-back made his senior Palace debut as a substitute in February in an FA Cup win over Hartlepool, before his first start in the same competition against Stoke City.
And the youngster has been away with the Palace’s first-team on their pre-season tour in Singapore and Australia where he featured against both Liverpool and Manchester United.
Sky Blues boss Mark Robins told ccfc.co.uk: “We are delighted to welcome Tayo to the club.
“He is a player that is full of energy, gets up and down the left side and will add another exciting dynamic to the squad.
“He’s excited to be part of the squad for the season ahead and continuing his development with us.
“We’re looking forward to working with him, and I’d like to thank Crystal Palace for their co-operation in getting this transfer done.”
Adaramola started his career in his native Ireland with St. Kevin’s Boys and St Mochta’s before heading to Palace in 2015 to pursue his footballing career.
The defender has been capped by the Republic of Ireland at under-17, under-19 and under-21 levels.
