Manchester City of England will no longer recall their Nigerian-born defender, Tosin Adarabioyo from his current loan spell at Blackburn Rovers at the end of this month, as their lower division counterparts have been able to reach an agreement on giving the lad an extension, megasportsarena.com gathered.
Adarabioyo will now stay for at least another month with the English Championship club, who gleefully revealed that the former England youth international will remain available for their matches until the end of this season, which means he will be eligible for Rovers’ quest for a spot in the English Premier League if they qualify for the promotion play-offs.
The 22-year-old central defender’s initial loan deal with the Lancashire club was meant to end on June 30, but everyone at Ewood Park had already started angling for him to stay put, as he has become an integral part of the squad, after making 28 starts and netted three goals since his arrival from Ethiad Stadium last summer.
He had to join Rovers back then because his chances of breaking into Man City’s starting line-up were inhibited by the presences of Fernandinho, Nicolás Otamendi, Aymeric Laporte and John Stones, who are all rated ahead of him in the pecking order of center backs.
Consequently, leaving Manchester has now turned into a divinely inspired move by Adarabioyo, who spent the whole of last season on loan at West Bromwich Albion, as he has played more often to improve his quality in each game and got his 75th career appearance as a professional in Tuesday’s Championship clash with Barnsley at Oakwell.
