Oladapo Afolayan on fire since summer West Ham exit with 13 goals and six assists in 48 games

Oladapo Afolayan left West Ham for Bolton Wanderers in the summer after spending a successful four-month loan spell with the Trotters previously.

David Moyes allowed the young forward to leave the London Stadium back in the summer.

At the time it seemed like the right decision. Afolayan had done next to nothing for the senior team and he was 24 after-all.

Now there are questions being asked as to whether the Scot made the right call by allowing the 24-year-old to leave to join Bolton.

Oladapo Afolayan has played an integral role for the Trotters this season. The London-born ace has demonstrated his undoubted ability on a consistent basis for Bolton.

It is worth remembering that he has been doing this in England’s third tier of football, however. At the same time though, you can only play against who’s in front of you…

Oladapo Afolayan produces the goods yet again

The 24-year-old took his tally for the season to 13 goals and six assists in 48 games after his strike yesterday afternoon (Transfermarkt).

He has mostly played as a left winger for Bolton, so 19 goal involvements in 48 games is a very healthy return indeed.

Some may argue that the 24-year-old has found his level. Others may say that West Ham gave up on Oladapo Afolayan too soon.

Only time will tell as to whether Moyes is proved right in his decision to let the young forward leave East London.

At the moment, however, the Bolton attacker is certainly proving the powers that be at West Ham wrong…and good luck to him!
