Oyeleke, who can also play at full-back, had spells at the academies of both Chelsea and QPR before joining the Bees and has made two first-team appearances for the Griffin Park club.

The 20-year-old will be added to the Northampton squad for their trip to Gillingham on Tuesday night.

Cobblers boss Aidy Boothroyd said: "I have watched Manny play a number of times and he will add to our squad.

"He is a strong, athletic, combative midfield player who can play anywhere across the midfield or at full-back.

"He is here to challenge for a first-team place and to gain experience. I think we can help Manny and I know he can help us."

t's a bloody good goal, though. Sh!t, the kid's gonna be the worlds best before we know it, isn't he? He's got the touch of genius in him. Like Neymar, but with muscles and stuff. He's doing a Ronaldo as we watch. He's bulked up to be able to ride the tackles, but he's improved technically as well. His touch is sublime. Bugger.
