Playing Style

As a box-to-box midfielder, Hammed’s strength lies in his tactical awareness, intelligence, and ability to read the game. His defensive prowess is evident through his strong positional sense, off-the-ball movement, and remarkable ball-winning capabilities. Hammed is versatile with both legs, making him a formidable force in midfield.


Citing football luminaries such as Lassana Diarra, Claude Makélélé, and Kante as inspirations, Hammed acknowledges their influence on his playing style. However, he emphasizes having his unique approach to the game, often tasked with the “dirty work” – running, fetching, and retrieving possession.

On the Field

Under the guidance of Osun United Coach Ajayi Oluseye, Hammed has thrived in the “double six” holding midfield role, predominantly on the right-hand side. His effectiveness in disrupting opponents’ possession play in the final third and initiating swift counter-attacks has been a key asset for Osun United. Notably, Hammed showcased his skills in a friendly match against Kwara United, where he dominated the midfield.


As the 2023/2024 Nigeria National League (NNL) Season approaches, expectations are high for Hammed’s impactful presence in the Osun United midfield. Fans anticipate witnessing his tenacity, defensive solidity, and ability to contribute both defensively and offensively in the upcoming season. Hammed Sultan Oladele is undoubtedly a player to watch as he continues to make a significant mark in Nigerian football.
