Talks ongoing – 24-year-old Ace set for Celtic move

Brendan Rodgers must make a move for defender Moses Odubajo. Recent report claim that Celtic are concluding talks with the former Hull City right-back.

Odubajo, 24, has had to watch the game from the sidelines for two years after undergoing three major knee surgeries but he could now be set to return to action at Parkhead with him believed to have taken a trip down to Austria for talks with Rodgers.

The former England under-20 international picked up a serious injury during a pre-season game versus Grimsby Town but is now thought to be fully fit to play.

This present several clubs with a rare opportunity to acquire the signature of a promising talent on a free transfer, as Odubajo has stated he will depart Hull once his contract runs out at the end of this month.

Rodgers is slightly short staffed at the right-back area, with longtime starter Mikael Lustig holding the fort, but the jury is still out on Christian Gamboa.

The Hoops can reinforce the position whilst also potentially getting themselves a starter.

Odubajo always looked dangerous for Hull and was an integral part of their promotion-winning campaign just two years ago.

If not for the sustained injury, the 24-year-old could have been a regular fixture in Hull games in the Premier League the following season.

Rodgers should take full advantage of the situation, and the transfer is risk-free, as Celtic can secure his signature for free.
