The 23-year-old was a standout for Brian Rice’s team last term despite their relegation from the top flight of Scottish football. Originally signed as a right-back, Odoffin impressed at centre-back before being moved into the middle of the park, where he was excel for the rest of the campaign as an effective spoiler in front of the back four.

According to the Daily Record, Jack Ross is now considering making a move to bring him to Easter Road. However, Accies were able to sign up the Englishman to a one-year extension in March and will command a fee for their player as they aim to make an immediate return to the top flight of Scottish football.
