Nigerian prospect Tayo Adaramola is on loan from Crystal Palace to Coventry City.

    The 18-year-old has played youth level soccer for the Republic of Ireland, but he is still eligible to play for the Super Eagles.

    Tayo Adaramola, a defender, has officially signed a season-long loan agreement with Coventry City of the EFL Championship, according to Crystal Palace.

    The 18-year-old, who is of Nigerian heritage, recently traveled to Singapore and Australia with the Eagles team for preseason training.

    Crystal Palace Academy full-back Tayo Adaramola will spend the entire season on loan at Championship club Coventry City, the club said in a statement on their website.

    “The 18-year-old represented the Republic of Ireland U21s in the summer and joined the first team on tour in Singapore and Australia the following month. He made his senior debut last season in the FA Cup against Hartlepool United and made his first competitive start in the following round against Stoke City.

    He joins Coventry as the Sky Blues want to improve upon their top-half Championship finish in 2021–22, and follows Reece Hannam in securing a loan to Bromley.

    Adaramola has outlined his goals to advance his career and make the most of this chance with Coventry.

    The same portal quoted Adaramola as saying, “Playing and training with professionals is what every young footballer aspires to do. So, I’m determined to make the most of this opportunity with Coventry and want to thank the people who helped to secure it. My first taste of senior football last season drove me on to work for more.”

    Adaramola, who is qualified to represent both Nigeria and the Republic of Ireland, received his first call-up to the Republic of Ireland U17 team in 2020.

    After being elevated to the U19 squad, he made his U21 debut on October 8, 2021, against Sweden in a friendly.
