Sources: QPR in advanced talks to sign Odubajo after Sheffield Wednesday exit

QPR are in advanced talks to sign former Sheffield Wednesday defender Moses Odubajo, Football Insider understands.

The defender left the Owls at the end of his contract last month after being released following two years at Hillsborough.

A QPR source has told Football Insider that Odubayo, 27, has been training with the club with a view to a potential transfer.

Negotiations have progressed well over a potential contact and a deal is close to being agreed.

The right-back joined Sheffield Wednesday on a free transfer after leaving Brentford in 2019.

He played a total of 46 times for the Owls in a variety of defensive and midfield roles.

Odubajo was a regular among the starting XI under Garry Monk and Tony Pulis during the start of the 2020/21 campaign.

However, he fell out of favour under caretaker manager Neil Thompson at the turn of the year.

The defender failed to regain his place following the appointment of Darren Moore in March.

He did not make a single appearance under the former West Brom boss before his contract expired.

His final league outing came on New Year’s Day against Derby County.

A graduate of Leyton Orient’s academy, Odubajo is an experienced campaigner in the Championship.

He has made 157 second-tier appearances, while he has five play-off appearances under his belt.

His availability this summer caught the eye of QPR boss Mark Warburton, who is in the market for defensive recruits.

The 58-year-old offered Odubajo the chance to train with the Hoops’ squad with a view to a possible free transfer.

It is understood talks have progressed behind the scenes and the defender is close to penning a deal at the London outfit.
