Former Sheffield Wednesday defender Moses Odubajo is on the brink of signing for QPR.

“He’s had a frustrating time with injury and there’s no doubt about his quality, we’re just looking at his fitness and durability – and he showed that this afternoon in abundance. You saw what a talented boy he is.

“I thought he had an outstanding game. From the first kick and first tackle he was on the front foot.

“I’m really pleased for him. He’s had a frustrating time but there’s no doubt he’s an outstanding athlete and an outstanding player.”

Odubajo had a difficult two seasons at Hillsborough having arrived on a free transfer in the summer of 2019. That move too would have seen him join up with one of his former bosses, Steve Bruce, though he left for Newcastle United before the start of the season.

He struggled to get going in an Owls shirt, making 46 appearances in all competitions. He was one of 10 senior players to have been released by Wednesday last month.
