Wakefield Trinity are delighted to announce the signing of Sadiq Adebiyi from London Broncos.
Adebiyi has signed a one-year deal with Trinity, with an option for an extra year in 2023.
The 24-year-old arrives at Trinity after impressing at London Broncos over a six year period, which included a spell in Super League in 2019.
Adebiyi has represented Nigeria at international level and is comfortable playing in the back-row and in the middle.
Speaking on his move to Trinity, Adebiyi said: “I’m really excited. When I got the call from Willie about joining the club, I just couldn’t wait to get started,”
“Wakefield Trinity is a great club and I can’t wait to meet the fans and the people around the club.
“It will be a big change for me, but I’m looking forward to the challenge. I don’t know much about the north, but I have a few friends over there, including Eddie and Pittsy who I’m looking forward to linking back up with at Wakefield. I spoke to both of those guys when I signed and they said that there is a good bunch of lads here.
“It’s been a tough twelve months for me, being out with a ruptured achilles, but I managed to get back playing towards the back end of the season and I’m now ready to do the hard graft in pre-season and get in and amongst the lads.”
Trinity Head Coach Willie Poching is looking forward to welcoming Adebiyi to the group and said: “Sid was tipped to us by a lot of experienced and knowledgeable minds who have been involved with the London Broncos,”
“Upon watching him and speaking to Sid, I could sense his love of the game and his passion to want to be in an environment where he will grow and where we can help him reach his goals.
“It is exciting to have Sid join us and I know he’ll be a great member of our group.”
