'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Beattie Adds Odejayi To Our Ranks

James Beattie has completed the loan signing of 31 year old striker Kayode Odejayi.

The former Barnsley and Colchester striker has signed a three month deal with Accrington, joining us from Rotherham United.

Odejai has represented Nigeria once in his career and also had spells at Bristol City and Cheltenham Town, and during his spell at Barnsley in 2008 he scored the goal for them in the FA Cup that knocked out Chelsea.

Speaking to the Official Site Odejayi said that the move could've actually happened quicker than it did but for whatever reason it didn't, however he's now looking forward to getting started at Stanley.

'I want to come here, get some games and hopefully score some goals and help the club to improve our league position and get as high up the table as possible.'

James Beattie said of the signing.

'We're delighted. This is something I've been working on for two or three months and we were unfortunate to not get him permanently.'

With vague reports in the press suggesting that James was considering pulling his boots again to help the team out, Odejayi could be perfect for us.

He's been handed the No 24 shirt.

Since making his debut for Bristol City the striker has gone on to make 264 starts in the Football League, 172 substitute appearances and has scored 71 goals.

Be nice if by the time his loan spell ends that the goalscoring total reads closer to 100.
