CHIEDOZIE OGBENE HAS joined League Two side Exeter City on loan from Brentford.

The 21-year-old only moved to the Championship club in January from Limerick, but has struggled for regular game time with the Bees, making just three first-team appearances since the switch.

Ogbene subsequently was listed among the substitutes for his new side’s game with Lincoln today.

Exeter have made a promising start to the season, taking 10 points from five games, leaving them in the play-off spots.

Ogbene made his League of Ireland debut with Cork in 2015, before transferring to Limerick.

Born in Nigeria, the promising winger moved with his family to Ireland in 2005. Eligible to play for both countries, he indicated in an interview with The42 earlier this year that he would “prefer” to represent the African country if the opportunity ever arose.
