Queens Park Rangers Forward Aramide Oteh Joins Stevenage on Loan

Oteh’s Experience So Far
Oteh started his youth career with Tottenham Hotspur but ended up leaving for Queens Park Rangers in 2017. He is primarily a centre-forward, though capable of being played out wide. Oteh is experienced across the football league, having had loan spells with Walsall and Bradford City. The forward has featured for Queens Park Rangers in the Championship too.
In January 2019, he made the move to Walsall, a League One club at the time. He scored just one goal in 13 appearances for the Saddlers.
Oteh then joined League Two side Bradford City at the beginning of the 2019/20 campaign, where he managed five-goal contributions (four goals, one assist) in 22 appearances.
Following that, he returned to Queens Park Rangers for the remainder of the season, where he struggled to find a goal, though, only started the one game in that period.
Oteh Can Bring That Bit More to Stevenage
Stevenage have averaged just one goal per game this season, and have picked up just one win in five League Two games, so will be hoping Oteh can help them add a little more to their output.
They’re acquiring a fairly experienced striker for his age, who will, of course, still be developing.
Immediate Connection With the Manager
On the move, Aramide Oteh told the club website: “It feels great. I am glad to be here and I’m ready to go.
“The club have been interested in me for a while and the gaffer played a big part in my decision. We had an immediate connection and you always want to feel wanted, so I can’t wait to get playing to show what I can do.”
Stevenage manager Alex Revell added: “He is a top talent. He has played Championship football and his club manager has said positive things about him and his attributes.
“It is a really exciting signing and he has had experience in League Two so he knows what to expect. He was desperate to come and prove himself, which is really important, so I am looking forward to working with him.”
