Scunthorpe United announced Southampton striker Olufela Olomola as our first signing of the summer of 2018, joining on a free transfer. The 20-year-old forward penned a three-year deal.
Olomola is an Arsenal graduate and joined Southampton in 2014. He enjoyed a loan spell with Yeovil Town in League Two last season, where he scored seven goals in 18 league starts between August and January.
Olomola has represented England at Under-19 level, has captained the Arsenal Under-18s and most recently was a part of the Saints Under-23s side that got to the Southampton FA Senior Cup Final.
As of the end of the 2018-19 season, Olomola had made six appearances for United but was prolific in friendlies for the Under-23s side. He also scored three goals in 17 league appearances during a further loan spell with Yeovil in that campaign.
He joined Carlilse United on a season-long loan in July 2019.
