Bolton youngster Tope Obadeyi has been handed a one-year contract extension.

The 21-year-old forward has so far made just three appearances off the bench for the Trotters - all during the 2008/09 season.

But the England Under-20 international has since boosted his experience with loan spells at Swindon, Rochdale and Shrewsbury.

Last season he played 10 games in a two-and-a-half month stint with the Shrews in League Two and continued that form in the Bolton reserves to earn a new deal at the Reebok Stadium.

"I'm happy to have signed for another year," said Obadeyi. "I felt like I was playing well for the reserves towards the end of last season and now I've got to kick on.

Faith

"I've been here since I was 16 and now hopefully I can force my way into the manager's plans because he's shown faith in me by offering me another year.

"My aim is to perform well in pre-season and see where that takes me. I'm aiming to be in that first-team squad.

"Any chance I get to play, I've got to make sure I take it. I'm a striker or a left-winger and, if I get one-on-one with a player, I like to think I can get at him."
