Moses Odubajo has taken a significant step in his recovery from injury as he returns to first team training with Hull City.

The Anglo-Nigerian has endured a lengthy spell on the sidelines after dislocating his kneecap in a friendly game against Grimsby Town in July 2016.

Odubajo who joined the Tigers from Brentford in August 2015, had undergone three surgeries since he limped off at the Blundell Park to correct the injury to his knee.

After helping the KCOM Stadium outfit to gain promotion to the English Premier League two years ago, the former Leyton Orient defender could not register a minute in their unimpressive campaign that saw them return to the second tier.

And with just two months remaining before the end of the 2017-18 Championship season, the 24-year-old could return to help the relegation-threatened Tigers, placed 20th in the league table with three points adrift of the drop zone.

Odubajo last competitive game was against Sheffield Wednesday in the 2016 Championship play-off final, which the Hull won 1-0.
