At 20-years-of-age, you’re approaching the time of your fledgling professional career where you need regular, competitive first-team football to maintain your natural progression.
In order to achieve this, it is almost becoming the norm for Premier League clubs to send youngsters out on season-long loan deals to clubs in a lower tier of football.
Today, it has been confirmed by the BBC, that our midfielder Tayo Edun has joined Ipswich Town on loan.
Edun, of whom the club has high hopes, has played 7 times in all competitions for Fulham and has represented England at U20 level.
Upon joining Ipswich, Edun has spoken about wanting to work with the Ipswich Town boss, Paul Hurst:
Got his head screwed on, this kid. Very pleasing to hear from young players who want to work specifically with Paul Hurst – that's a great endorsement of the new boss. Hopefully a mutually beneficial signing. #itfc #ffc https://t.co/9Y3CXe13V6

Impressed whenever I've seen him, busy midfielder who likes to get forward every now and again. Wouldn't expect miracles but he's got bags of potential, hoping he gets a decent number of games with you lot

Ipswich Town take on Blackburn Rovers in their first Championship game of the new season tomorrow and Edun is eligible to play. With Fulham’s season not starting, in earnest, until the following Saturday, we’ll keep a watchful eye out to see how he progresses.
Meanwhile, here at Vital Fulham, we’d like to wish Tayo Edun all the best for the coming season.
