Where is Ade Akinbiyi now?

Much-travelled striker Ade Akinbiyi retired from playing in 2010 after a brief spell at Notts County.

Over a 17 year career he made over 550 first-team appearances scoring over 150 goals and was involved in a number of big money moves including a £3.5 million move from Bristol City to Wolves and a £5.5 million move from Wolves to Leicester City.

He also represented the Nigeria national side on one occasion in 1999.

Upon retiring from playing he spent three years out of the game before joining Colwyn Bay in 2013 as player-coach alongside former Leicester City team mate Frank Sinclair.

He left the club when Sinclair resigned from his post in 2015.

Since then he has been working as a football consultant focusing on talent identification in Nigeria and Ghana with talented youths who are looking to further their football careers within Europe.

Akinbiyi is also an ambassador for Prostrate Cancer UK
