Hear from the boss...

3 September 2021

Gary Rowett sat down with after completing the season-long loan signing of Sheyi Ojo on Tuesday night.

The 24-year-old became the manager's sixth signing of the summer transfer window on deadline day and will now spend the 2021/22 campaign in SE16.

"I'm really pleased to get the deal over the line," the boss said. "We were looking for that type of forward who has that extra bit of creativity, can beat players in one-v-one situations and has the pace to open tight games up.

"He's a really good player who has done well at this level previously, playing over 100 games at Championship level. He got five or six goals at Cardiff with seven assists, so to post those sorts of numbers is excellent. He's one of those players you look at and think there's more to come from him as well.

"We wanted another forward and we've got another forward, at a good age in his career too. We're excited to work with him."
