Dele-Bashiru began his career at Manchester City youth teams, but failed to make it to the first team of the side he joined when he was eight.

“I’m honored to sign for Sheffield Wednesday and I’m excited to be here.

“I’m at an age now where I want to be playing first team football and I am confident it will fall into place for me here.

“I know there are other players in the same position but competition for places is a positive.

“My game is about power, strength and pace, I like to go box to box and I like taking on a shot too,'' Fisayo Dele-Bashiru explained.

Fisayo is the younger brother of Tom Dele-Bashiru who currently plays for Watford and also represented Nigeria at the Under 20 World Cup.
