Tim Akinola joins Al Bidda on permanent deal

Tim Akinola vs Cambridge United

Tim Akinola has joined Qatari side Al Bidda SC in a permanent transfer.

The 22-year-old midfielder joined us as a pro from Huddersfield Town in August 2020. Before then, Tim was at Lincoln City where he impressed and progressed into their first-team squad in the EFL Trophy. While at Lincoln City, he also spent some time on loan with non-league side Lincoln United.

Nigerian born, Tim had a positive first season for our academy, when he made 26 appearances in all competitions during the 2020/2021 campaign. The following season saw Tim go on a short-term loan to Dundee United.

Last season saw Tim feature for National League side, Chesterfield on a season-long loan where he made 31 appearances in all competitions, helping them reach the play-off final at Wembley.

We thank Tim for his contribution to the club and wish him all the best with Al Bidda.

The deal is subject to the completion of regulatory processes.
