Friday, August 09, 2019 - Fast rising Kenyan footballer, Clarke Oduor, is among several players who changed clubs on the English transfer deadline day.
The 20-year old winger, known for his pace and lethal left foot, joined Barnsley from Leeds United for an undisclosed fee.
Clarke is a product of the Leeds United Academy.
Speaking after putting pen to paper on a long term deal at Barnsley, Oduor said:
“I’m excited for the new challenge and what it’s going to bring. It’s great that Barnsley has 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, he told the club website.
Oduor hopes to walk in the footsteps of Harambee Stars captain, Victor Wanyama, who plies his trade with North London outfit, Tottenham Hotspur.
