- Mipo Odubeko joins Huddersfield Town on loan
- Striker arrives from Premier League club West Ham United
- Comments from Leigh Bromby & Carlos Corberán
Welcome to Huddersfield Town, Mipo Odubeko!
The striker joins on loan from Premier League West Ham United for the 2021/22 Sky Bet Championship season, with the move having a break clause for both clubs in January 2022.
Born near Dublin, Ireland, the 18-year-old has been a prolific scorer at Under-23 and Under-18 level for The Hammers and his former club Manchester United.
He’s made his senior debut for David Moyes’ side too, appearing in the Emirates FA Cup and the Papa John’s Trophy last season.
Mipo will wear the number seven shirt for the Terriers.
Head of Football Operations Leigh Bromby commented:
“We’re delighted to welcome Mipo to Huddersfield Town today. He’s one of the most promising young strikers in England at the moment, and we’re delighted that West Ham have entrusted us with this phase of his development.
“With the unfortunate injury to Jordan Rhodes, we wanted to ensure that we had a good number of striking options, and Mipo gives us that alongside Danny Ward, Fraizer Campbell and Josh Koroma.
“Mipo adds some different qualities to our forward options and, when we spoke, it was clear he has a huge desire to show what he’s capable of in senior football.”
Head Coach Carlos Corberán added:
“Mipo is a young striker with potential, who offers us something different in the attacking areas.
“He can play as a single striker or as a front pairing, and his finishing is a real strength; he has a very good shot from both his left and right sides.
“I am looking forward to working with him over the coming weeks and months.”
