Erion joined the young Bees from Oxford United after spending time with the youth ranks at the League One club.

The central defender signed a one-year contract with a club option of an additional year after impressing with the young Bees for a short period in the 2022/23 season.

Zabeli was part of the team that reached the 2022/23 FA Youth Cup quarter-final, the furthest any Oxford side has progressed in the 71-year history of the competition.

The youngster has featured eight times for the Albanian national team at youth level across four different age groups, receiving his first call-up for the Under-19 group during the first year of his scholarship at Oxford.
