Date of birth

Tope Obadeyi joined Oldham Athletic in the 2017 January transfer window on a free transfer.

The striker, who can also operate on the right hand side of midfield, joined the club following his release from Dundee United.

He is no stranger to manager John Sheridan after playing under the manager for three different clubs.

Obadeyi started his career with Bolton Wanderers but despite a promising start to life at the Macron Stadium, found himself out on loan. 

He was first signed by Sheridan at Chesterfield but failed to make a real impact at the Proact Stadium.

Sheridan then signed the player on loan for Plymouth Argyle where again he struggled to hold down a starting spot.

Obadeyi made the move north of the border and joined Kilmarnock in the Scottish Premier League to resurrect his careers.

He scored 12 goals in over 50 appearances in a two-year spell and from there, he joined Dundee United.

After half a season with them, Sheridan swooped for a third time to bring him to Park until the end of the 2016/17 season.

Obadeyi scored two goals in 15 appearances, including a goal against top of the table Sheffield United in a 1-1 draw.

At the end of the campaign, Obadeyi was offered a futher one-year deal to stay at the club.
