Another signing in the bag for Yeovil Town and another, like Jordan Gibbons, who impressed enough on trial to earn a deal is Omar Sowunmi, here’s five things you need to know about the newest Glover.

1) Omar Sowunmi is a 19-year old defender formerly on the books of Ipswich Town.

2) Sowunmi signed a one-year professional deal with the Tractor Boys last summer in the hope he’d push towards their first team.

3) He has spent time on loan with Braintree and Lowestoft Town last season. Whilst with the latter he would have played alongside former Glovers defender Curtis Haynes Brown.

4) Earlier this year Sowunmi told press it would be tough to turn down an approach from the Nigerian national side if they asked him to represent them.

5) You can follow Omar on Twitter by following @OmarSowunmi
