Tayo Edun signed for Charlton in July 2023, arriving from Blackburn Rovers for an undisclosed fee.
Born in Islington, Edun began his career at Fulham, coming through the Whites' academy system before making his senior debut in August 2016 in a 3-2 win against Leyton Orient in the League Cup.
He continued to impress over the next year and, in 2017, was part of the history-making England U19 side, who became the first Young Lions team to win the UEFA U19 European Championship after beating Portugal 2-1 in the showpiece final. Indeed, the teenager was named in the official Team of the Tournament alongside the likes of Diogo Dalot, Mason Mount, Ryan Sessegnon and Viktor Gyökeres.
After making four appearances in Fulham’s promotion-winning 2017/18 campaign, Edun joined Ipswich Town on loan and made an instant impact, scoring a last-minute leveller against Blackburn Rovers on his debut.
He enjoyed seven outings for the Tractor Boys before returning to his parent club in December 2018 to undergo surgery on an eye injury.
Edun completed a permanent move to Lincoln in January 2020. In his first full season with the club, he made 54 appearances across all competitions and helped guide the Imps to the 2020/21 Sky Bet League One play-off final, narrowly losing out to Blackpool at Wembley.
He sealed a switch to Championship outfit Blackburn Rovers that summer for an undisclosed fee and went on to feature 34 times for the Lancashire side.
