Hemel Hempstead Town have completed the signing of highly-rated Leyton Orient youngster Victor Adeboyejo on a youth loan deal.

Adeboyejo, 17, comes straight into the Tudors’ first team squad for their trip to Sutton United on Saturday.

After spells with the academies of Arsenal, AFC Wimbledon and Charlton Athletic, Adeboyejo moved to Leyton Orient in the summer of 2014.

He performed well in 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.

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

In February 2015, striker Adeboyejo went on a loan to Southern League club Royston Town, scoring on his debut in Royston’s 2–0 win at Aylesbury United.
