Released by Cambridge in December 1995, Adekola moved to Germany to play for BFC Preussen and Viktoria Köln.He returned to English football in October 1996 when he signed for Brighton & Hove Albion. He played just once for Brighton, in a 2–1 defeat at home to Cambridge United on 12 October, before being released the following month.

In July 1998 he joined Billericay Town, moving to Slough Town in August 1999. He joined Hendon during the 2000-01 season.

In May 2005, Adekola finished runner-up in a vote for Bury's Cult Hero organised by the BBC show Football Focus.
