Celtic boss, Brendan Rodgers has admitted that the club are interested in signing Hull City full back, Moses Odubajo, but says talks remain at an early stage.

Odubajo has joined Celtic at their training camp in Austria, but Rodgers says the 24-year-old is not practicing with the team, and says he has been unfortunate with injuries in the last two seasons.

Odubajo was part of the Hull team who achieved promotion through the play offs in 2016, having arrived from Brentford in 2015 and helped The Tigers win promotion to the Premier League, but his last two seasons have been ruined by serious knee injuries.

Celtic have only made one signing this summer, breaking their transfer record to acquire Odsonne Edouard from Paris Saint-Germain, but Rodgers remains relaxed about the club’s recruitment efforts.

Rodgers said: “In terms of his profile, Moses, when he is fit, is a really dynamic full-back who gets forward. He is very aggressive.

“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.

“I had seen him as a young player at Leyton Orient and then coming through the England system and through into Hull, where he had a great season in the Championship

“It was unfortunate in that season for him in that season where they get to the Premier League, he suffers the injuries so it has been difficult for him.

“We have work to do. We need to strengthen, there is no doubt, but I am sure the club will organise that over the course of the next number of weeks.

“So myself and his agent and the club have had a conversation. We will look to progress that and wait see what happens over the course of the next week.”
