Brentford Development Squad midfield player Emmanuel Oyeleke joins Skrill Premier Aldershot Town on loan

Development Squad midfield player Emmanuel Oyeleke has signed on for another loan spell at Aldershot Town.

Emmanuel, better known to most as Manny, joined The Shots on a Youth Loan in August and was with the Skrill Premier side until late January.

He has now joined the Hampshire side again, this time on loan for the rest of the season.

In his first five months at Aldershot Manny made 33 appearances, playing in both midfield and at right back, and scored four goals.

Ose Aibangee, Brentford Academy Director, said: “Manny did very well in his first spell at Aldershot.

“We had good reports both about the way he played and also with the way he conducted himself as a professional.

“He played through the busy Christmas period and he got to experience that side of life as a professional footballer.

“Aldershot were very keen for him to go back and we feel that is best for his development at this stage.

“Aldershot have a lot to play for in the last month of the season and Manny will play in games with a lot riding on them.

“This will be good for him and I hope he will thrive in that environment.”

Manny made his Brentford debut in an FA Cup Second Round tie against Wrexham in December 2011 and has made two further appearances for The Bees, in a League One game against Milton Keynes Dons and in a Capital One Cup tie against Dagenham and Redbridge earlier this season.

He also had a spell on loan at Northampton Town last season.

Manny played 11 Under-21 Professional Development League Two South games for Brentford’s Development Squad last season, scoring three times.

This season he has played seven Under-21 games, scoring once.

Aldershot are currently in the Skrill Premier relegation zone.

They are 21st with 38 points from 39 games, having started on -10, four adrift of safety.
