The 22-year old striker who can also play right wing completed a medical before agreeing terms at the Club's training ground this evening. The completion of the transfer is now just the subject of formal processes.

Ademola arrives from Blue Square Bet South champions Woking FC, where 21 goals in 71 league appearances made him a firm favourite with the fans, enjoying a two and a half year spell at the Kingfield Stadium.

The gifted youngster spent his formative years at Cray Wanderers in Crawley, London, eventually leaving in 2004. Having signed for Croydon Athletic, Ademola competed in Sky TV's reality show, Football Icon 2 in which young players competed for a contract at Chelsea - he finished as a losing finalist.

Scoring 19 goals for Croydon in the Isthmian League Division One he signed his first professional deal with Brentford in May 2008, for a reported fee of £2.500. With two loan spells at Welling he joined Woking, on loan initially in 2009, before making the switch permanent in January 2010 where he has built a reputation as a clinical finisher.

Manager Ian Baird said: "I'm very, very pleased as he is a good age with a proven goal scoring record. When we've played against him over the years he has been a thorn in our side and will be a super addition to our squad."

Moses has been training with Eastleigh since the weekend and will be present for the fans open day this Saturday, "I have tried to get a good mixture of experience and youth who have a winning mentality - Moses fits the profile perfectly as he has already won things and I'm delighted he has decided to join us having seen what we are trying to achieve here," Ian continued.

Talking about next season Ian added: "Nothing is a given in football but everyone at the club knows what is expected. We now have a very healthy squad, all striving for a 1 to 11 shirt which will provide the healthy competition needed to be competitive for our promotion push."
