England centre Paolo Odogwu sorts his future

Wasps have confirmed that speedster Paolo Odogwu has extended his contract with the club.

The 23-year-old is Wasps’ leading try scorer this season, with six tries in just eight games so far this term.


The rapid winger come outside centre has been in scintillating form recently, claiming man-of-the-match in the high-scoring win over Bath Rugby.

That form saw Odogwu named in the England Squad for the Guinness Six Nations.

Speaking about the contract extension, Odogwu said: “I’m really happy to have extended my time at Wasps.

“I’m having a great time playing in this team at the moment and I’ve felt at home ever since I joined the environment. There’s a great culture and buzz about the place and working with all the coaches over the past couple years has given me the confidence in my ability and the opportunity to show what I can do on the field.

“I have really loved my time at the club so far. All the squad are working hard to build on the progress we have made recently and I’m excited about being part of Wasps’ future.”
