Odubajo Injury Update

Scans have confirmed that Moses Odubajo ruptured his medial patellofemoral ligament during our pre-season friendly against Grimsby Town last week.

However, on a more positive note, the 22-year-old full-back has not sustained any further injuries to his cruciate ligaments and will meet with surgeons later this week to discuss the next step.


Following surgery, our medical staff will monitor Moses’ progress during his rehabilitation to determine when he will be ready to return to training, with the full-back expected to be sidelined for up to six months.


“First and foremost, it’s desperately disappointing news for Moses,” said Tigers boss Steve Bruce.


“He was exceptional for us last season as we won promotion back to the Premier League and we expect him to be a top player for many years to come. 


“I know how much he was looking forward to testing himself in the top-flight of English football and to now have to sit out the first half of the season is a big blow - both for him and for the Club.


“Looking at the positives, at least the injury is not at the same level as the one suffered by Robert Snodgrass at the start of the 2014/15 season and, as a result, we will look forward to seeing Moses return to training in the New Year.”
