Sheffield Wednesday opinion: Should the Owls sign Moses Odubajo?
With Steve Bruce at the helm of the club, Sheffield Wednesday had a small chance at a playoff spot but inconsistent performances turned out to be their downfall. The fact that the club lost 14 out of their 46 games and drew a further 16 shows just why the summer window will be a massive time for the Owls.
It’s not just that they’ve been inconsistent but the club will be losing eight players including two centre-backs, one left-back and two central midfielders.
As mentioned, it will be a massive summer window for them and now that it is open, they clearly need a new defender on their team-sheet.
One man who Sheffield Wednesday should pay attention to is Moses Odubajo and given the season that the 25-year-old has had, it should be a no-brainer. The Examiner Live has reported that the Owls are leading the race for the Brentford defender.
With Odubajo leaving Brentford to join the vast world of free agents, a move makes a lot of sense.
For the Owls, it allows them to acquire a rather versatile star who Steve Bruce knows so well. The Sheffield Wednesday manager has managed the 25-year-old earlier when the two were at Hull City.
His performances there with the Tigers won a lot of plaudits, with Moses Odubajo a key part of the side that got promoted to the Premier League. But with Sheffield Wednesday looking to rebuild their squad, few players would be as useful as Moses Odubajo, especially given the situation they are in.
As mentioned above, the club need reinforcements all across their team-sheet. His versatility is a big reason why a move is perfect for Sheffield Wednesday. Over the course of his career, the 25-year-old has played as a left-back, right-back, central midfielder and even as a centre-back.
All this means that he could deputise in numerous positions for the club and with all the departures, someone like Moses Odubajo will help ease the burden. However, that doesn’t mean he can do the job on a full-time basis.

Sheffield Wednesday could lose a lot of players and replacing all of them at once will be a massive undertaking. Moreover, it will cost a lot of money but adding a free agent like Moses Odubajo will only serve to help the club move forward.
