Moses Odubajo finally completed his transfer to Hull City on Friday afternoon in an undisclosed deal that is thought to be in the region of £3.5m – although the attacker put pen to paper too late to be included in tomorrow’s curtain raiser against Huddersfield Town.

Hull boss, Steve Bruce, was originally looking to make a double Brentford swoop, and was believed to have bid in excess of £7.5m for both Andre Grey and Moses Odubajo – it is unclear at this stage whether Friday’s developments mean the Grey deal is dead in the water, or if City will come back with an improved offer later in the transfer window.

Odubajo, who played 49 games for the Bees after joining from Orient a year ago, forced the move away from Griffin Park after invoking a release clause, and leaves a selection dilemma as Marinus Dijkuizen prepares to pick his first starting eleven as new Bees manager.

The enforcer, Alan McCormack, is expected to get the nod against Ipswich, however, Nico Yennaris has played several of the pre-season warm-ups, and is also in contention.
