QPR ‘plan to go ahead’ with the signing of departed Sheffield Wednesday defender Moses Odubajo, who’s been training with the R’s.
Odubajo, 27, has previously played under QPR manager Mark Warburton at Brentford.
The Englishman left Sheffield Wednesday following the expiry of his contract earlier in the summer and was soon after reported to be in training with QPR, having featured in their pre-season friendly win over Portsmouth earlier in the month.
Warburton and his coaching team were having a good look at Odubajo’s fitness but now West London Sport report that the club ‘plan to go ahead’ with the signing.
Odubajo was one of a handful of players to leave Sheffield Wednesday at the end of last season. He featured just 18 times in the Championship for Wednesday last time round owing to injury, having featured 22 times in the league the season prior.
Odubajo was one of Sheffield Wednesday’s more consistent performers. Despite struggling with injuries he proved a favoured name among fans and he should bring with him to QPR a good bout of Championship experience.
He’s able to play on the right-side of defence or in the middle and for Warburton at QPR, who’s changed between a back-four and a back-five at times, having someone with Odubajo’s versatility will be hugely beneficial.
Whether he’ll be a starting name or a back-up one remains to be seen but on the whole, this seems to be another piece of shrewd business from the west London club.
