Grimsby Town Football Club are pleased to announce the signing of attacking midfielder, Diallang Jaiyesimi on a season long loan from Norwich City.
Predominantly a winger, the 19-year-old joined The Canaries in January 2016, where he joined as a second year scholar from Dulwich Hamlet, after being identified the previous September. The Canaries fought off competition from a number of Premier League teams to sign the promising youngster. DJ was invited for a trial, where he played in 4 fixtures, scoring once.
During the 16/7 season, Jaiyesimi finished Norwich City Under 23's joint top scorer with 8 goals in 33 appearances.
Jaiyesimi completed an extensive pre-season schedule with Norwich, travelling across to Germany for the under-23's pre-season tour. In his most recent performance, DJ scored in the clubs 2-1 defeat to Eintracht Braunschweig.
Jaiyesimi will be available for selection from Saturday, where we welcome Coventry City in our opening Sky Bet League Two home fixture. He will wear the number 20 shirt.
