It has now been confirmed that Bolton Wanderers player Oluwasanmi Babafemi Oluwaseu Odelusi, or Sanmi Odelusi as he is better known, has joined Wigan Athletic on a permanent deal.

Odelusi, 22, has signed a 3 year deal for an undisclosed fee, believed to be in the region of £50,000.

Sanmi Odelusi joined Bolton's academy in 2009 after spells with QPR and Reading. In 2012 he was given a professional contract, and a year later made his debut, coming on a substitute for Darren Pratley in a 3-2 loss for the Whites away to Charlton.

The 2013/2014 season saw Odelusi given his full debut in the League cup against Shrewsbury, where he scored two goals in a 3-1 win. Despite an encouraging performance, Odelusi never really kicked on to become a first team regular. Injuries hampered his progress and meant he was never really given a chance.

His last Bolton Wanderers appearance came in the 1-0 defeat against Cardiff in the FA Cup in January 2014.

Loan spells at MK Dons and Coventry City followed, the latter of which being last season, where he scored three goals in fourteen games. You can read a review of his time at Coventry here.

I'm sure the rest of the LOV team will join me in wishing Sanmi all the best for the rest of his career.
