Gateshead Football Club are delighted to announce the loan signing of Rotherham United forward Joshua Kayode until January 11th.


The 19-year-old bolsters the Heed’s attacking power and has experienced non-league football previously, spending a short stint on loan at Chesterfield in the National League last season – with one of his three appearances coming against Gateshead.

Kayode has made two senior appearances in the Checkatrade Trophy for the Millers since signing his first professional contract in November 2017, appearing against Bradford City and Manchester City Under-23’s.

“I’m really happy, it’s going to be a good experience for me,” he told gateshead-fc.com after arriving on Tyneside.

“I want to help the club get back to where they need to be and hopefully bang a few goals in as well.

“I got the train at nine o’clock so I’ve literally been here about 10 minutes!

“The pitch looks great though and the people here seem really good, so I can’t wait to get started.”

The young striker, who played with player-coach Michael Nelson at Chesterfield, went on to reveal that only has one thing on his mind this season – notching as many goals as possible in a Gateshead shirt.

“I want to get as many goals as possible while I’m here and get as much game time as I can to help the team out.

“I’ve got a lot of pace, and I like getting in behind players and running at players with the ball.

“Nelse is great, he helped me a lot when I was at Chesterfield. He’s a good leader on and off the pitch so I can’t wait to start working with him and the rest of the coaches.”
