Adeniran played for three different clubs in 2022 namely Seattle Sounders, Tacoma Defiance and San Antonio FC.
He began his professional career at Leganes B, and took in loan spells at Guadalajara and Castellón during his time at The Pepineros.
After ending his association with Leganes, the 24-year-old wore the colours of Kickers Emden and Atlas Delmenhorst in Germany before joining Seattle Sounders on a permanent deal in December 2021.
Although Adeniran has been listed as a Nigerian by his new employer, he will not take up an international roster slot because he holds an American passport
He is credited with six appearances for Seattle Sounders’ first team, comprising four in Major League Soccer and one each in the Concacaf Champions League and US Open Cup.
