Celtic target and former Hull City defender Moses Odubajo training with old club Brentford

Former Hull City defender Moses Odubajo is training with Championship side Brentford, the club have confirmed.

Odubajo rejected a new deal to stay at the KCOM Stadium this summer, ending a three-year stay in East Yorkshire in favour of continuing his career elsewhere.

The defender hasn’t played competitive football in more than two years after picking up a knee injury during a pre-season friendly against Grimsby Town in 2016, dashing his hopes of playing Premier League football in black and amber that season.

The Tigers were of course relegated to the Championship but further setbacks ensured a second season passed without an appearance, despite turning out for the under-23s in March.

Nevertheless, in an effort to keep fit while he is unattached he has started training with his old side Brentford, where he spent one season before moving to the Tigers in 2015.

Odubajo hasn’t been short of interest this summer with Aston Villa thought to be keen, while Celtic have held talks with the 24-year-old.

The fullback was flown out to Austria by the Bhoys last week to meet up with club representatives and while Brendan Rodgers admitted interest in taking Odubajo to Celtic Park he admitted a deal was far from being done.

“He’s not training,” Rodgers told STV News last week. “We had permission from Hull (to bring him to Austria). He’s a player who’s been out injured for a long period of time so at this time there’s nothing concrete.

“We’ve invited him over to have a conversation and we’ll take it from there. Myself and his agents and the club have had a conversation and we’ll look to progress that and see what happens in the next week.”
