Poole Town FC have completed the loan signing of Jonah Ayunga from Brighton and Hove Albion until the end of the season.
Brighton signed the 20-year-old forward from Dorchester Town for £40,000 two years ago. Ayunga has previously been out on loan to League of Ireland clubs Sligo Rovers and Galway and it was while on loan to Galway that he suffered a fractured leg.
Although not fully fit, he is training and close to being ready to play. With Brighton in the Premier League, however, the deal had to go through within the transfer window, despite the injury.
With Kenyan heritage, Ayunga has been selected for the national team before his injury and is highly regarded at Brighton.
