Adeyemi is currently on loan from Red Bull Salzburg at FC Liefering in the second division of Austrian football, where he has spent the past two years.

The Munich-born forward has scored 11 goals and assisted a further eight strikes in 30 senior appearances for Liefering, a very healthy return for a player who only turns 18 next year.
