Cork City FC are delighted to announce the loan signing of Tobi Oluwayemi from Celtic.
The goalkeeper, who has been capped up to Under 19 level by England, will join Colin Healy’s side until the end of June, and he told CorkCityFC.ie that he was pleased to have sealed the move: “I’m really happy to be joining Cork City. I think this is a fantastic opportunity for me to do this. When I first heard that Cork City were interested, it was a move that I thought could be very good for me. I know Barry Coffey well from his time at Celtic, and he had a lot of good things to say about the club, about where the club want to go and the supporters. I am looking forward to getting over to Cork and meeting everyone.”
City boss Colin Healy welcomed the news saying: “We have been working on this for a while and we are delighted to get Tobi in. We have a very good relationship with Celtic, and we appreciate their help in getting this deal done. Tobi is a very talented lad, and we are looking forward to working with him over the coming months. He will strengthen our squad and I am looking forward to seeing him in training next week.”
