Odejayi reflects on "unbelievable" time at U's
Departing striker Kayode Odejayi has reflected on an “unbelievable” time at Colchester United.
The powerful front man has ended his three-year stay with the U’s by signing for Rotherham United.
Last season’s supporters’ player-of-the-year says he has nothing but fond memories from his time with the club – and admits it was an agonising decision to leave.
“It was a really tough decision, with pros and cons to consider either way, but, having chatted at length with my partner, I feel I’ve made the right decision,” he said.
“She’s from that neck of the woods, we’re getting married in the summer, we plan to try for children in the not too distant future and it will be better for her to be around her close family when that happens.
“The move had to be right on the football front, as well, and I believe it’s a great time to be joining Rotherham.”
