Hull City have been handed a boost with the news defender Moses Odubajo should return from injury next month.
The right-back suffered a nasty knee injury in the Tigers’ first pre-season friendly against Grimsby, which has prevented him making his Premier League debut following promotion from the Championship.
He was a key figure in the Tigers’ rise to the top flight, and the 23-year-old is finally training outside again.
Returning to match action will be a massive boost to manager Mike Phelan, and Odubajo plans to be available for selection before November is out.
“It’s a huge boost to be going back outside to work every morning. I feel like a footballer again, even though I’m not back to the playing stage yet,” he told the club’s official website.
“We have a fantastic medical team here and it feels like a blessing to be back to the stage I’m at now. I’m progressing really well and I think I’ve got about another month to go. Hopefully by the next international break I’ll be in and around things, which is good.
“I went to see the surgeon last week and he gave the all-clear to get back outside with no real restrictions. It’s a case now of trying to get back to where I was before in terms of fitness and taking it from there.”
