Yeovil Town have announced the return of striker Olufela Olomola on loan until the end of the season.

The 24-year-old joins from League Two Hartlepool United for what will be his third stint at Huish Park.

He will go straight in to the squad for tomorrow’s visit to Eastleigh bolstering the squad which has scored the fourth lowest number of goals in the National League this season.

Speaking following the move, Olomola said: “I’m happy. I’m delighted the deals been done and I can’t wait to get going. 

“Darren Sarll was very enthusiastic about getting me down here. I want to make an impact on the team, help climb up the table and get some wins.”

He will take the number 10 shirt vacated by Joe Quigley when he joined promotion-chasing Chesterfield last season.

The former Southampton youngster has played just 14 times since joining Hartlepool following his release by Scunthorpe United at the end of last season, scoring once.

His last League start for Hartlepool came in mid-September and he has mostly been used off the bench since moving to the North East.

However, he is well-known to Yeovil fans having scored seven times in 28 appearances for Darren Way’s Glovers whilst on loan from Southampton in 2017-18.

Having been released by the Saints in summer 2018 he joined Scunthorpe before returning for a second another six-month loan spell at Huish Park where he scored three times.

Since his time last spell for Yeovil, Olomola has had a successful loan spell at Carlisle United from Scunthorpe, where he struck five goals in League Two.

He had a further loan spell at Carlisle United in 2019-2020 where he scored five times in League Two.

Following his release by Scunthorpe in the summer, he went on trial at Hartlepool where he impressed then-manager Dave Challinor enough to earn a contract.

Welcome (back) to Somerset, Fela.
