Pacy defender Odubajo signed for City in August 2015 and immediately took the first team right back slot from Ahmed Elmohamady. He played the entire Championship season, playing an important role in City’s promotion through the play-offs and winning a number of Player of the Season awards. He suffered a serious knee injury during a July 2016 pre-season friendly and missed the subsequent entire Premier League season. Further setbacks throughout 2017/18 meant Moses also missed a second entire season, and he left City in June 2018 despite being offered a contract extension.
Moses’ youth career stalled when he was 14 as a result of a family bereavement. He signed for Leyton Orient when he was 17 and after several non-league loans he made a first team place his own, encouraging Brentford to sign him in 2014. After an impressive first season with the Bees, Odubajo signed for City in a partly successful double swoop that was intended to also include striker Andre Gray.
Refusing a new City contract, Odubajo embarked on several free agent trials before re-signing for Brentford in August 2018, where he once again became a pacy first team regular. A year later he signed for Sheffield Wednesday, briefly reuniting with ex-City boss Steve Bruce prior to his departure to Newcastle. After spending two years at Sheffield Wednesday, amid much turmoil and eventual relegation to League One, Moses left the Owls in June 2021 on expiry of his contract.
Obubajo was awarded six England under-20 caps while at Brentford and City.
