Aston Villa are keeping tabs on Hull City defender Moses Odubajo, according to the Hull Daily Mail.

He has not played for Hull since their 2016 Championship Play-Off final win over Sheffield Wednesday and has been side lined for the past two seasons with injury. However, Villa are showing an interest in bringing him to Villa Park in the summer.

Odubajo is out of contract at Hull next month meaning he can leave them on a free transfer. Despite being injured for the past two years, there is still no sign of a new deal for him at the KCOM Stadium.

Villa boss Steve Bruce knows Odubajo well from their time at Hull together. He signed Odubajo from Brentford in 2015 for £3.5 million and the right-back was a huge player for the Tigers in their Championship promotion campaign of 2015/16.

Odubajo has 51 games for Hull City that season and was being tipped for a big future in the game. However, injuries have stalled his career but he now apparently back to full fitness and ready to go for next season.

He started his career at Leyton Orient and was loaned out to St Albans, Sutton United and Bishop’s Stortford before breaking into their first-team. He played over 100 games for the O’s before he was signed by Brentford in 2014 for around £1 million.

He helped the Bees get to the Championship Play-Offs in his only season at the club before his move to East Yorkshire. When fit, Odubajo has proven that he is a top full-back in this league and would be a decent signing for Villa.
