Celtic are no longer interested in signing Hull City full-back Moses Odubajo this summer, despite inviting him to their Austria training camp last week.
That’s according to website Football Insider, who exclusively claim via sources that Brendan Rodgers has opted not to pursue a deal for the 24-year-old.
Rodgers had admitted last week that discussions were taking place with the player and his representatives after gaining permission from Hull to bring him to Austria.
It was revealed yesterday that the player was now in training with English side Brentford, another indication that the Hoops have decided he is not the solution on the right flank.

Options are needed to support Mikael Lustig on the right side of defence, with the World Cup quarter-finalist drawing criticism at club level last season. While he still has plenty to give the Hoops, competition for the Swede would surely improve his game.
Odubajo was an intriguing target. His career has stalled due to injuries over the last couple of seasons but he has a track record of impressive performances in the English Championship and Rodgers was very complimentary about his attributes last week.
Clearly though he is not of the standard required and fans will have to wait on another right-back arriving this summer.
