Adeyemi extends loan at Bradford City

Norwich City midfielder Tom Adeyemi has extended his loan spell with Bradford City until the end of the season.

Adeyemi's original loan spell with Peter Taylor's side was due to expire this Wednesday, but the Canaries have agreed to let the 19-year-old stay at the Coral Windows Stadium until City's last fixture of the season.

This means that Adeyemi's new loan deal will allow him to play for City in the npower League 2 Play-Offs should the Bantams take part.

Adeyemi has enjoyed a good run in the Bantams team since his move from Carrow Road, making 22 appearances in all competitions, scoring two goals.

His maiden Bradford City strike came on his debut away to Shrewsbury Town in the season opener, while he has also scored for the Bantams at Barnet.

The midfielder progressed though the youth and reserve ranks at Colney and made his Norwich City debut as a substitute in Norwich City's 7-1 defeat to Colchester United at Carrow Road on the opening day of last season.

Adeyemi, who made a total of 17 appearances in the Norwich City first team last season, won national recognition when he was named as League One Apprentice of the Year at the Football League Awards in March.

'He's been playing really well for Bradford in his initial six months with them and I spoke with Peter Taylor recently who said he had done well.

'I'm sure that it will benefit both him and the Club that he will now spend the rest of the season with Bradford.'

Bradford City boss Peter Taylor added: 'Tom has done fine for us.

'He has had some great games and some not so great ones, but you could say the same about everybody. He is learning the game and he will be a good player.'
