Norwich City have loaned out two of their young players.

Forward Diallang Jaiyesimi has joined League Two Swindon Town on a season-long deal while goalkeeper Aston Oxborough has joined National League South Wealdstone until January.

Jaiyesimi, 21, joined City in January 2016 from Dulwich Hamlet and played regularly for the Under-18s and Under-23s before moving on loan to Grimsby Town for the 2017-18 season, scoring once in 34 games at Blundell Park.

He began last season on loan at Yeovil Town and made an impressive start with two goals in his first nine appearances, but an anterior cruciate knee ligament injury ruled him out for the remainder of the campaign in October.

He made his return to action for the Under-23s in a friendly defeat to Leyton Orient last weekend, scoring City's only goal in a 2-1 defeat.

Confirmation of his move comes a few days after the deal was announced over Swindon's PA system during an open training session at the County Ground in front of hundreds of fans, ahead of a friendly against local side Melksham.
