Hull complete signing of Moses Odubajo for £3.5 million

Published 1 Comments

Hull City have this afternoon completed the signing of Moses Odubajo from Brentford.

Done Deal

Odubajo joins on a three-year deal after the £3.5 million release clause in his contract was triggered by Hull on July 30, as reported by the Mirror.

Brentford had up to 21 days to find a higher bidder, though have now decided to sell well before that deadline as no other clubs look to have shown an interest.

The 22-year-old joined from Leyton Orient last summer and appeared in all but one match for the Bee's in 2014-15.

Greenwich born Obubajo has six England Under 20's caps to his name but failed to score any goals for the side during this time.

The Tigers are also chasing Brentford striker Andre Gray but are yet to meet the West London club's £7 million valuation of the player.

In 2010, the striker was released by Shrewsbury Town and subsequently joined Hinckley United where he was able to show his goalscoring ability. Gray scored 16 goals in the Championship last time round after signing from Luton Town for a fee of £300,000.

The 24-year-old born in Wolverhampton appeared six times for the England C side during his time at Luton in the Conference Premier. Gray scored twice for England, against Belgium Under 23's and Bermuda.

Hull will begin life back in the Championship with a home tie against Huddersfield tomorrow. Steve Bruce is likely to be without his son Alex for the match who is struggling to recover from an achilles problem.
