Football News Update: Stockport County Secures Promising Striker with Three-Year Contract

In a significant move for Stockport County, the club has announced the signing of 24-year-old striker Isaac Olaofe to a new three-year contract. Affectionately nicknamed “Tanto”, Olaofe was the standout performer for the Hatters in their successful League Two title-winning campaign, netting an impressive 20 goals in 43 league appearances.

The new deal includes an option for an additional year, further cementing Olaofe’s future at Edgeley Park. The striker was brought in from Millwall last year for an undisclosed fee and has quickly established himself as an integral part of Dave Challinor’s squad.

Challinor, the Stockport County manager, expressed his delight at securing Olaofe’s services, stating, >”This signing shows that those players may already be in our building.” He emphasized Olaofe’s pace, power, and potential for further improvement, noting the challenge in finding a player with similar attributes.

Olaofe’s final goal of the previous season sealed the vital win against Morecambe, securing the club’s promotion to League One. This new contract extension is a testament to the young striker’s impressive performances and the club’s belief in his continued development.

As Stockport County prepare for their return to the third tier of English football, the retention of key players like Isaac Olaofe will be crucial in their bid to establish themselves at the higher level. Fans will eagerly anticipate the upcoming Euro 2024 qualifiers, Champions League, FIFA World Cup, Women’s World Cup, and domestic competitions, including the Premier League, EFL Cup, EFL Championship, EFL One, EFL Two, and FA Cup, as the new season approaches.
