Moses Odubajo: Exciting product of Orient's academy system

The 20-year-old winger is a product of Orient’s academy system and they have carefully nurtured him into a first-team star following loan spells at St Albans, Sutton United and Bishops Stortford earlier in his career.

The youngster has been handed a senior stage on which to shine in the last two seasons, and has offered a sizeable return on that show of faith.

The 2013/14 campaign saw him score 12 times in all competitions, including a spectacular strike in the League One play-off final defeat to Rotherham United.

His efforts have not gone unnoticed, with Premier League interest reported to have been sparked.

Tottenham Hotspur reportedly enquired as to Odubajo’s availability in January, and remain keen, while West Ham United are also claimed to be plotting a raid on their capital rivals.

Orient have no intention of selling, though, with Hearn eager to ensure that a successful side is not allowed to be broken up by the poaching of top talent.

He said in The Sun: “Moses is the best player to come out of Orient in generations.

“It would take a king’s ransom to get him out of the club.”

ou can't blame De Gea for wanting to leave, he has enough to do in front of goal as it is as well as taking on the role of Man Utd's version of Derek Acorah in trying to contact and organise a defence that isn't there.
