Odoi Arrives

Thursday 14 July 2016 16:00

The Club is pleased to confirm the arrival of our fifth summer signing, Denis Odoi, after the player put pen to paper this afternoon.

The 28-year-old full-back, who is comfortable on either side, arrives from Belgian top-flight outfit Lokeren for an undisclosed fee on a three-year deal, with a Club option for a further 12 months.

Odoi began his career at Oud-Heverlee Leuven, before moving to Sint-Truiden in 2009. Belgian giants Anderlecht then signed him for a reported £1.3m in 2011, and in each of his two seasons at the club he won the Belgian Pro League, whilst also representing Anderlecht in Europe.

Odoi joined Lokeren in 2013 and made 37 appearances in his debut campaign as they finished fifth in the league and won the Belgian Cup. That trophy win set up a UEFA Europa League qualifier against Hull City, whom they beat on away goals to progress to the group stages.

He departs Lokeren having made 117 appearances for the club in three years.

Odoi has represented his country at Under-20 and Under-21 level, and was handed his Belgium debut in 2012 in an international friendly against Montenegro.
