Oldham loan deal ends for young Norwich City defender Adel Gafaiti
Young Norwich City defender Adel Gafaiti has returned to Norfolk after his loan deal with Oldham Athletic ended.
The 19-year-old joined Oldham in March but only made one substitute appearance. His loan deal expired on Monday and has not been extended by Latics boss Lee Johnson.
“Adel showed a good attitude while with us and is a good player,” Johnson told the League One club’s official website. “It’s a shame he did not get more game time but for the fantastic form of Adam Lockwood and James Wilson.”
Gafaiti, an Algeria Under-20 international who joined City when he was released by Scottish club Rangers, has continued to play for City’s Under-21 side while on loan.
He started for City’s Under-21s in their 1-0 win at Wolves last night.
