Hamilton have recently confirmed that talented Everton prospect Korede Adedoyin is heading back to Goodison Park six months early.
The teenage forward arrived in South Lanarkshire from Everton during the summer. His stay was meant to be for the whole season as the Merseyside club aimed to get him some first-team football.
That hasn’t happened at Hamilton and after six months without a senior appearance, both clubs have mutually agreed to terminate the loan.
Competition leads to Accies departure for Everton loanee Adedoyin
Plenty of competition within the Accies squad has been highlighted as one reason for Adedoyin’s exclusion from the first-team. He was competing with the likes of George Oakley and Steve Davies for a starting berth.
A club statement from Accies reads: “Everton loanee Korede Adedoyin has returned to his parent club. The 18-year-old spent the first 6 months of the 2019/20 season further developing himself at Hamilton, however, with tough competition for places, the decision was mutually agreed between both clubs for a return to Everton.
“Korede leaves with the best wishes from everyone at the club. We thank him for his time spent at Hamilton.”
It’s a shame this never worked out for anyone involved but Adedoyin’s return to Everton may give Accies some extra funds to work with this window.
