1007 Moses Odubajo

Biography

Pacy defender Odubajo signed for Hull 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 the 2017/18 season meant Moses also missed an second term and he left City in June 2018 despite being offered a contract extension.

Moses Adeshina Ayoola Junior Odubajo was born in Greenwich, South East London. His youth career at Millwall 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, scoring 16 times in 114 senior appearances and showing form that encouraged Brentford to sign him in July 2014.  After an impressive first season with the Bees that yielded three goals in 49 appearances, Odubajo signed for Hull 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 making 35 appearances in the 2018/19 season.  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 and making 46 appearances, amid much turmoil and eventual relegation to League One, Moses left the Owls in June 2021 on expiry of his contract and returned to London, signing a one year contract for Queens Park Rangers. A single season at Loftus Road saw Moses add 33 senior appearances but his services were not retained and in July 2022 he joined Greek Super League side Aris Thessaloniki.

Obubajo was awarded six England under-20 caps while at Brentford and City.
