Swindon Town have announced their second signing of the summer in Shrewsbury Town full-back Tunmise Sobowale, what will he add to the squad?

The 25-year-old has arrived having had plenty of experience in the League of Ireland and played over 1,000 minutes in his maiden season in the EFL with Shrewsbury last season, making ten starts in the third tier as he admitted to adapting to English football.

Head of Football Jamie Russell said that the six-foot-three defender fit the bill of what Swindon wanted in their wing-backs as they built for the new season, adding athleticism to wide areas and also additional size to help with defending against set pieces.

Sobowale described himself as: “Direct on the ball and attacking-wise I would say that I was very skilful when confidence is high, I can go left or right. I am passionate about the game, the supporters, and the club. I will bring a strong work rate, to put it simply.”

Despite only recording one assist last season, Sobowale did demonstrate himself to be a dynamic threat on the right flank for The Shrews. He was used in a variety of positions, initially as a right-wing back in Matt Taylor’s 352 and then as both a right-winger and right back in Paul Hurst’s 4231.

Statistically, his dynamic ability with the ball at his feet stands out, his 1.94 successful dribbles per 90 ranked in the 94th percentile in League One last season and his 1.32 fouls won per 90 were in the 80th percentile, displaying that he was difficult to stop when he got on the run.

He struggled more with chance creation after those runs, with 0.35 chances created per 90 and 0.18 successful crosses per 90, but Mark Kennedy will be hoping he can add some polish in the final third to some of the raw talent he possesses.

Defensively he has shown himself to be very active, ranking in the 89th percentile for recoveries and the 88th for possession won in the final third, although he only won 33.3 per cent of his tackles and 41.9 per cent of his aerial duels, another indicator that Sobowale arrives with strong fundamentals but will require refinement in his game.

In Kennedy’s system, which appears most likely to be a 343, he will slot in as the right wing-back, providing width and thrust from out wide to create space centrally for the attacking players.
