Oladapo Afolayan joins Bolton Wanderers on loan from West Ham until the end of season


England-born Nigerian footballer, Oladapo Afolayan has joined Bolton on loan from West Ham until the end of the season.

The 23-year-old striker made a goalscoring debut for the Hammers last month in a 4-0 victory against Doncaster Rovers in the FA Cup and is understood to have been recommended to the League Two side by ex-skipper Kevin Nolan.

“We are really pleased to have brought in Dapo,” said Wanderers boss Ian Evatt. “He’s quick, strong and technical and a very exciting attacking talent who can play all along the front three.”


Afolayan joined West Ham from Solihull Moors in 2018, having spent his youth at a multitude of clubs: Harrow St Marys, Chelsea, Toronto FC, Barnet, Tooting & Mitcham United, and Toronto Varsity Blues. He also spent time on loan at Oldham and Mansfield.
