Keith Hill: Sanmi Odelusi Makes Us Stronger

27 July 2016

Manager Keith Hill has told Dale PlayerHD that the signing of Sanmi Odelusi makes his squad stronger.


The winger put pen to paper on a season-long loan on Monday. He joins Rochdale from Championship side Wigan Athletic.

Hill is delighted to have secured the services of the 23-year-old. 

“It makes us stronger,” said Hill.

“He has a lot of the ingredients that I expect from a player who plays up front. He’s got pace, he’s got power, he can be quite direct at times and he’s got a threat at goal. He gives me a bigger, better rounded squad.

“He’s got to catch to speed because there’s a certain way that we do things, but when he catches up to speed he’ll be a really good footballing asset for this football club.

“Like I said, he makes us stronger and he makes us better. It’s that calibre of player that I’m looking to recruit and I want another three.”

And Hill hasn’t ruled out another addition to his forward options, if he can get his man.

“There’s one more special player that I would like to recruit but at this moment in time I’ve got absolutely no chance.

“He’s a player I’ve been chasing for 12 months, if not a little bit longer, and we’ve not managed to snaffle him yet. But if he was to become available then he’s the player that I would recruit in a heartbeat.”
