29 year-old defensive midfielder who joined Hayes & Yeading in February 2020 from Romford.
Sanmi started his career in the youth ranks at Queens Park Rangers, Reading and finally Bolton Wanderers for whom he signed professional terms, going on to make 6 league appearances for the Trotters while also having loan spells with MK Dons and Coventry City.
In 2015 he signed for Wigan and then had further loan spells with Rochdale and Blackpool before moving on to play for Colchester United and Cheltenham Town.
In the summer of 2019 he joined National League side FC Halifax Town and on leaving them he moved to South Shields in October 2019.
After initially “retiring” at the end of December 2019 to concentrate on coaching, he returned to playing with Romford before moving to United a short time later to continue his playing career where he impressed in his few appearances before both campaigns were curtailed.
Last season he was able to show his obvious quality in the United side although injuries did limit his appearances.
