Nigeria target Moses Odubajo has suffered yet another injury setback in training and he will be out for six months after he fractured his Patella.
The Hull City defender has been scouted by Nigeria’s Super Eagles for the problematic right fullback position.
Last year, he made six appearances for the England U20s.
Odubajo suffered the serious knee injury during a non-contact incident in training, Premier League newcomers Hull confirmed in a statement on Thursday.
While Odubajo's knee ligaments remain intact, the 23-year-old will undergo surgery next week to stabilise the fracture.
It is another blow for the swash-bucking fullback, who was on the comeback trail after dislocating his patella during the off-season.
