The Tottenham youngster has moved to Rangers for the 2015/16 season.
Oduwa agreed a season long switch to Ibrox, and he has told the official Rangers website which strengths of his will suit the club under Mark Warburton’s management.
The youngster said: “I know a little bit about the manager as last year he did well developing Alex [Pritchard] and Brentford did really well too while playing good football at the same time, so I think I will enjoy my time here. I like to win the ball back quickly and be in possession a lot. We learned that a lot at Spurs from a young age so hopefully that will suit me.”
He certainly sounds well set to feature in Warburton’s tactical set-up, with his desire to win the ball back quickly a prime tactic utilised by the manager.
Oduwa is a versatile attacking midfielder, able to play across all the offensive positions, and his willingness to defend from the front-line is perfect for a high-pressing system.
He will also play a key role in the attack, and his desire to be in possession and in control of the ball a lot will suit Warburton’s attacking plays. Likely to feature as a winger, Oduwa is pacy and strong in control of the ball, and it is hard to see the youngster being anything other than a success for the Gers.
Oduwa is looking to break into the Tottenham first-team in the coming years, and aside form a short spell at Luton, this is the 19-year-old’s first chance of consistent competitive action.
He looks to have all the traits needed to excel under Warburton, and a strong season with Rangers could see his chances to make it with Tottenham improve rapidly.
