Deal Close ? – Manager confirms Celtic are ‘very keen’ on signing Hull City star player

According to the Derby Telegraph, Celtic boss Brendan Rodgers has confirmed that his side have a “strong interest” in Hull City defender Moses Odubajo.

It is believed that the right back joined the Scottish champions’ training camp in Austria, but Rodgers has said that the defender is yet to take part in any training with the Celtic’s squad.

The defender’s contract runs out with the Championship club at the end the month and he is set to find himself a new club as he will become a free-agent.

Odubajo has registered 42 appearances for the Tigers since he joined them from Brentford in the summer of 2015.

The defender has struggled heavily with injury during his time at the KCOM Stadium and his last appearance at the club came during the 2016 Playoff Final.

His impressive performances for Brentford back in 2015 saw him earned the call up to the England U20’s squad, where he registered six appearances for the Young Lions.

Odubajo was offered a new contract deal at remain at Hull by the Tigers boss Nigel Adkins, but the defender is seeking a move away from the KCOM stadium this summer.

On the speculation linking him with Celtic, the Hoops boss said:

“He is not training with the club.

“We had permission from Hull. He is a player that interests us. Of course he has been out injured for a long period of time.

“Just at this moment there is nothing concrete. We have invited him over to have a conversation and we will take it from there.”

Odubajo’s career at Hull appears to be over and we could see the right back in the Scottish Premiership next season.
