Everton’s forgotten £4m recruit Dennis Adeniran finally looking up to scratch

The former Fulham midfielder had a troubled season with injury at Finch Farm last term.

Last summer Everton snapped up the talented midfield talent Dennis Adeniran. It was a deal that left his former club Fulham disappointed, as they had high hopes for the talented maestro.

The England youth star joined Everton on the 1st September last year and did not arrive cheap. As reported by Sky Sports, the deal to bring him to Finch Farm to continue his development could eventually cost Everton a fee in the region of £4 million.

That is quite a sum to pay for a player who had made just five senior appearances for the Cottagers.

But he had caught the eye at Fulham, even scoring on his professional debut against Leyton Orient in the EFL Cup.

 

Last season, however, he did not light up the under-23s quite like Everton would have wanted. His early form was impressive, however, an injury cut short his season at the halfway point.

This term he is back to full fitness and Everton might have themselves a player in the 19-year-old. He has been one of the stars in the Everton under-23s so far this term, bossing midfield with his energetic and physical displays.

Everton signed Adeniran with the hope he could one day make it into their first-team. With midfield options at Everton looking weak due to James McCarthy, Andre Gomes and Beni Baningime’s injury troubles, fans might just get to see the £4m talent in the first-team before the end of the campaign.
