The defender joined Bristol City at the age of 10 and progressed through their academy system to join the under-18 setup on a scholarship ahead of the 2021-2022 season.

Despite an injury-hit first season as an under-18 at Ashton Gate, he spent the whole of the 2022 pre-season with the first-team which included a couple of appearances under Nigel Pearson.

His pre-season performances led to Araoye being handed his first professional contract in August 2022 at the age of 17, and he spent the following season performing well in the under-18 and under-21 sides.

After spending the 2023 pre-season with Bristol City’s first team on their Austria training camp and featuring in matches, he has been an unused substitute four times for the City first-time while featuring for their under-21s this season.

He joined the Seagulls on loan in January 2024 for his first experience of men’s football.
