West Ham have exercised their recall clause to bring Mipo Odubeko back from his loan spell at Huddersfield early, the clubs have confirmed.

Odubeko joined the Yorkshire side on a season-long loan deal in the summer, but featured for just 107 minutes over six appearances in the Championship.

The loan agreement had a clause which allowed either side to terminate the deal early in January, and it was mutually agreed between the clubs that it was best for him to return to his parent club.

The former Manchester United academy star has featured twice for the Hammers first-team and the 19-year-old is tipped to have a big future at the top level.

Back on loan

While Odubeko is highly rated, he needs regular game time and he’s not going to get that at the London Stadium right now.

The club made the right decision to end his loan with Huddersfield early, but they now need to find the perfect loan for him to help him develop and not waste an entire season of his early stages.

A Championship loan may be a step too far for him currently, so maybe a look at a League One club would be best suited for him.

He has previously been described as ‘pacy and powerful’ [The Sun] and has a good goal record in youth football, so it would be the perfect breeding ground for him to get a feel for the men’s game.

The club can then re-evaluate the situation in the summer when he returns again after being given a chance to impress in the second half of this season.

The most important thing for Odubeko is consistent and regular playing time and West Ham have done half the job correctly already.
