City completed the signing of highly-rated Hakeeb Adelakun in July 2018.

Adelakun arrived as a free agent after his contract expired at Scunthorpe United, penning a three-year deal in BS3, with the option of a further 12 months.

The London-born attacker had youth spells at Crystal Palace and West Ham before joining Scunthorpe in 2012 after a successful trial.

He made his Football League debut later that year, becoming the Iron’s youngest player. 

Adelakun made a total of 169 appearances at Glandford Park, scoring 20 times.

He has gained experience on loan at Rotherham United in the 2019/20 season, before a temporary spell with Hull City for the first half of the 2020/21 campaign. He was recalled to Ashton Gate in January.
