Hull full-back Moses Odubajo out six months with knee injury

Hull full-back Moses Odubajo is likely to be out until 2017 after the club confirmed he had ruptured a ligament in his knee and will miss the next six months.

The 22-year-old former Brentford player sustained the injury in a friendly with Grimsby on Friday and it follows last week's news that Allan McGregor and Alex Bruce will also miss the beginning of the campaign with problems.

"First and foremost, it's desperately disappointing news for Moses," Tigers boss Steve Bruce told the club's website.

"He was exceptional for us last season as we won promotion back to the Premier League and we expect him to be a top player for many years to come."

Hull also announced on Monday that former Stoke winger Peter Odemwingie is on trial with the club and will play in Tuesday's friendly against Mansfield Town.
