Emmanuel Oyeleke extends stay on loan at Aldershot Town

Development Squad midfield player Emmanuel Oyeleke has extended his loan spell at Aldershot Town for another month.

Emmanuel, better known to most as Manny, joined The Shots on a Youth Loan in August.

His loan spell expires on Sunday, December 22, as Manny turns 21 on Christmas Eve, December 24, and Youth Loans are only available for players under 21 years of age.

A new deal has been agreed to keep Manny at Aldershot until Tuesday January 28.

In four months at Aldershot Manny has made 27 appearances, playing in both midfield and at right back, and scored four goals.

Ose Aibangee, Brentford Academy Director, said: “Manny has done very well at Aldershot.

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

“We are very pleased with how the loan is going and this extension allows Manny to play through the busy Christmas period.

“He has learned a lot from the football he has played and will continue to develop as a player and a person by staying at Aldershot for a little longer.

“Manny worked with the First Team at Brentford in the past and we hope that he will come back better equipped to push for a place again.”

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.
