West Ham United can confirm that Oladapo Afolayan has joined League Two side Bolton Wanderers
on loan until the end of the 2020/21 season. Afolayan will enjoy his third loan spell in the Football League,
having previously represented Oldham Athletic and Mansfield Town in recent seasons
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.
