Club career[edit]

Leyton Orient[edit]

After spells with the academies of Arsenal, AFC Wimbledon and Charlton Athletic, Adeboyejo moved to Orient in the summer of 2014. He performed well in Leyton Orient's U18 side during the early part of the 2014–15 season, scoring 10 goals in 16 appearances, and progressed to the club's reserve team, for which he also scored.[3][4] He is contracted to Orient until 30 June 2016.[4]

Adeboyejo was first named on Orient's first-team bench for the 2–0 win at Doncaster Rovers on 21 October 2014,[5] and made his senior debut as a substitute for Jobi McAnuff in the 2–1 defeat at home to Peterborough United on 13 December, in manager Fabio Liverani's first match in charge of the club.[6]

In February 2015, Adeboyejo went on a work experience loan to Southern League club Royston Town. He scored on his debut in Royston's 2–0 win at Aylesbury United on 21 February.[7]

On his return to Orient, he featured as a substitute in the 0–0 FA Cup Second Round draw at home to Scunthorpe United on 5 December.[11]

Ahead of the start of the 2016–17 season, Adeboyejo went on a work experience loan to Isthmian League Premier Division club Dulwich Hamlet.
