Born Joseph Oluwaseyi Temitope Ayodele-Aribo in Camberwell, England, the midfielder played for Staines Town in the Isthmian League Premier Division, winning the club’s academy player of the year award in April 2014.

He joined Charlton Athletic in September 2015 following a successful trial, and signed a one-year contract in May 2016.

At the end of the 2018-2019 season he was offered a new contract by Charlton but instead opted to sign a four-year deal with
Rangers.

In 2019 he made his Super Eagles debut in a friendly against Ukraine and was on the score sheet in the game which ended 2-2.

He was on target again as the Eagles held a star-studded Brazilian side to a 1-1 draw in another friendly.

    Undoubtedly his true age. At 24, he is supposedly almost 5 yrs older than the declared age of some of our last U-20 team, “affectionately” known as the SAMBISA ELEVEN. The thought that Aribo is older than some of those guys has me in hysterics.
    This football age of a thing ehn! A 35 yr old can shave and behave boyishly to deceive scouts, but eventually the old body can’t cope and will collapse with the demands expected based on the declared age. When agbada finally hook barbwire, there will be no hiding place. Moral of the story – stick to your real age. You will be much better for it!
