Swansea City completed the signing of Adrian Akande from Chelsea in the summer of 2020.

The exciting winger, who was reportedly targeted by Manchester United, penned a two-year scholarship in SA1.

Akande enjoyed a promising start to life with the Swans' under-18s, while he also turned out for the under-23s on several occasions.

The former Crystal Palace trainee's efforts were rewarded with a first professional contract in December, keeping him at the club until 2023.

After growing up in South East London, Akande was just eight years old when he joined Palace - having also been scouted by Charlton and Brentford.

He spent four years in the Eagles' academy ranks, before moving to Chelsea at under-13 level.

The attacking midfielder would play under the likes of Ashley Cole, Joe Cole and Tore Andre Flo during his three-year stint with the Blues.
