Festy Ebosele is entering his first season as a professional with Derby County’s Under-23s following two years as a scholar in the club’s Academy.
The Republic of Ireland youth international joined Derby from Irish side Bray Wanderers ahead of the 2018/19 season.
Ebosele has featured for the Rams at right-back but, with his attacking intent, he can also perform in a more advanced role too.
His first season with the club saw him play 22 times for the Under-18s as they claimed the Under-18 Premier League title, registering three assists along the way.
The 2019/20 campaign was another progressive one as Ebosele played 13 times for the Under-18s, scoring four times and claiming a single assist.
He also gained European experience in the UEFA Youth League with the Under-19s as he played five times and picked up one goal and one assist in the process.
He stepped up to the Under-23s during the season and appeared 12 times, six from the start, and recorded one assist.
