Adeniran joins Wycombe for the season

Friday, 25 September, 2020 10comments  |  Jump to most recent

Everton Under-23 midfielder Dennis Adeniran has signed for Championship newcomers, Wycombe Wanderers on a season-long loan.

The 21-year-old was among a clutch of players expected to be loaned out by the Blues this season and he joins Lewis Gibson and Nathaniel Markelo in getting a chance to get valuable first-team action in 2020-21.

Adeniran was signed from Fulham three years ago. He had made his senior debut for the Cottagers the year before but has yet to make his first-team bow at Everton.

Hopefully he can come back more experienced... so fingers crossed he gets plenty of game time.

He is joining a team who appear likely to struggle in their first season in the Championship. That said, Wycombe are a stable club with a very capable manager in Gareth Ainsworth who has been in the job eight years. So this should be a good development opportunity for Dennis.

I thought some experts on youth football said the likes of Adeniran weren't good enough and implied we should give them all free transfers. Looks like he is Championship level (at least) after all.

Good luck to the kid.

Antony Kelly...

“I say they haven't, they will all crash and burn. None of them will be Championship standard never mind good enough for Everton... What do you say? Over to you...”

They may not have proved anything yet, but the first one is now at a Championship club. They obviously attract interest at that level.

I'm not impressed by a loan system unless it is with an option to buy on a permanent basis and even then somewhat reluctantly. Here is a lad that some who have seen him think is promising and must have impressed somebody to bring him from Fulham but we don't seem to have the facility to improve him to take him to the next level.

Is loaning the player the only way to improve him or should the club be looking at their internal coaching systems? It is dealing with people, not products.

Given Wycombe's start to the season, he will get scant service. Surprised we can't get him a team where he would get chances more often than not.

Played the whole game as well, so must have done alright, even though they lost 0-2 at home. Great experience for him.

Gibson didn't get a sniff, but Reading are doing an us at the moment. Three from 3 and again top of the league!

Good luck to all our players wherever they can find game time.

I believe the majority of loans should be 'loan then buy' as the loaning club should want that option if the player is a success.

But.. the player and parent club are not always looking for a permanent home. It's more of a judgement on where they are at with further progress in a players development the main aim.

Currently the financial risk of agreeing a deal is to much for a lot of clubs. Agreeing to buy a young player for £1M is a big risk whilst struggling financially and more so if they need a replacement for a different position.

Coaching, training and practice may be brilliant but until they play half a season of competitve professional games it's hard to judge.

It's a little bit like learning to drive. Learning and passing a one of test is the basic requirement. The real development and learning comes from driving on the roads everyday for a few years, in different conditions, different vehicles, unknown roads and risks.

Lastly a player playing in an elite league doesn't make them an elite player. How many flops have we had in recent years.

Unfortunately I don't see Adeniran making a senior appearance for Everton. He's decent but needs to find his level, work hard and may get a chance to do a Lundstram later on.

This loan is, to my mind, not about readying him for the step up at Everton - but more about freeing up space for younger players with a higher potential in the U23s. The acquisition from Sweden will presumably take his spot.

With Gibson I see things a bit differently, I think we are still viewing him as first team material and trying to get him some experience.

Sadly for Adeniran and Bowler, I think their careers would be more advanced if theyd have stayed with Fulham and QPR respectively. They were worth a shout but just fallen short of an exceptionally high standard. Hope they both go on to do well.
