Dele Yampolsky (Hebrew: דלה ימפולסקי‎‎; born 28 July 1988 as Bamidele Ogunsanya) is a Nigerian-born Israeli footballer who plays as a midfielder.[1]

His first name "Bamidele" means "Follow me home" in Yoruba.[2] His unusual surname is the result of being adopted by his step father who is Israeli of Russian descent and moved him and his mother from Nigeria to Israel after getting married.

Biography[edit]

In 2004 Yampolsky moved to Maccabi Netanya there he played for two years in the youth team until he got promoted to the senior side there he became a permanent part of the team.

On June 20, 2011 after 7 years in Netanya he moved to Maccabi Haifa[3] for a fee of $440,000. He rejected a move to TSV 1860 München and Hapoel Tel Aviv in order to get a chance to play in the Champions League with Haifa.[4]

After two seasons with Maccabi Haifa he was released from his contract and in September 16, 2013 Yampolsky moved to play for the local rival Hapoel Haifa under a contract of $90,000 per season. He played in Hapoel for only one season.[5]

On August 19, 2014 Yampolsky signed a one-year deal with Hapoel Ra'anana.[6] After an unsuccessful season with Ra'anana, he moved to play in the Liga Leumit with Bnei Lod for the 2015-16 season. He was released from Bnei Lod on January 2016. On July 10, 2016 Yampolsky signed for one season with Sektzia Nes Tziona from Liga Alef.[7][8]
