Kenyan born-English defender Clarke Oduor has completed his move from Leeds United to Championship side Barnsley for an undisclosed fee on transfer deadline day.
The left-back who can also double up as a left-winger penned a four-year contract with Barnsley after being promoted from the Leeds academy back in February 2019. Oduor made one senior appearance for Leeds, from the bench, against Queens Park Rangers in the Emirates FA Cup back in January.
The 20-year old was included in Marcelo Bielsa’s first-team squad as the Leeds toured Australia this summer, featuring in the 2-1 pre-season victory against Western Sydney Wanderers.
In an interview with the club's official portal, Oduor was delighted to join Barnsley, "I’m excited for the new challenge and what it’s going to bring. It’s great that Barnsley have faith in me and they want me so much and, for me personally, it’s a great boost. Knowing a few lads here will help me settle into the club a lot easier and help me hit the ground running.
"I spoke to Wilksy a few times, he gave me a heads up about what it’s like here and everything was all positive. I can bring attacking pace down the left, creativity and hopefully a few assists. I’ve played a lot on the left-wing and at left-back, so I’m quite versatile."
