Serious knee injury sidelines Hull's Odubajo for six months

Updated: 

Hull City are expected to be without Moses Odubajo for six months after the full-back fractured his patella.

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 Odubajo, who was on the comeback trail after dislocating his patella during the off-season.
