Odel Offiah joined Albion in 2017 from Bromley.

Odel Offiah has signed a new contract that runs until June 2025.

The defender will now join Scottish Premiership side Hearts on a season-long loan.

Technical director David Weir said, “Odel has been around the first team picture for a while now, but we want him to get regular minutes.

“It was great for us to have another academy graduate get their first taste of Premier League football last season, something Odel had earned and we’re looking forward to seeing how he adapts to this new challenge in Scotland. We wish him the best of luck for the season.”

The 20-year-old joined us from Bromley in 2017 and progressed through our academy before making his first team debut against Cardiff City in the Carabao Cup in 2021.

He made his Premier League debut in April 2023 against Nottingham Forest.
