Kwaku Oduroh Joins On Loan

5 July 2023

Rochdale Football Club is delighted to announce the signing of full-back Kwaku Oduroh.

He joins on a season-long loan from Sky Bet League One side Derby County.

Upon joining up with the squad, the 20-year-old said he is excited for what lies ahead.

“I’m delighted, of course,” commented Oduroh.

“The gaffer showed a real interest and that was promising for me. We spoke a lot throughout the off-season and there was a clear plan.

“Coming on loan, he needs to trust that I can benefit his squad and help the development of the squad. For me, as a young player, for him to show that trust in me is everything.

“I want to show what I can do. I’ve not quite had the chance yet in my career, for one or two reasons, but I have a new opportunity and a chance to do it. I’m very excited and ready to go.”


Head Coach Jimmy McNulty commented:

“We’re very happy to secure Kwaku’s services for the coming season.

“He’s a high energy, durable full-back with good pedigree, having been developed in Manchester City’s Academy. He’s tactically flexible with good game intelligence.

“Culturally, in terms of his character and professionalism, Kwaku fits the profile we’re looking for.

“He will give us more depth and competition in the full-back position, but he also offers us versatility with capabilities of playing in a few positions if required, which will be valuable to us during the season.”

Oduroh is a product of the Manchester City Academy, having joined at the Under-9 age group.

During his time with the European Champions, he won the Under-18 Premier League and Premier League 2.

He left the club last summer and signed for Derby County on a two-year-deal following a successful trial.

The 20-year-old made six appearances for The Rams’ First Team last season and was a regular for their Under-21 team.

Welcome to the club, Kwaku!
