Injury Update: ajayi This Weekend


After spending almost 3 weeks in the treatment room, Nigeria’s Super Eagles defender Semi Ajayi is set to return to action for English Championship club West Bromwich Albion.

The utility defender has been out of action since October 21st due to a hamstring injury and the club coach Carlos Corberan said he is in line to return this weekend.

During a press conference on Friday, the coach made it clear that the Nigerian International is likely to return for the weekend game against Hull City.

“If he ( Ajayi) completes the training session on Friday, can be part of the matchday squad on Saturday.

“He trained on Thursday with the group and came through that fine.

“It’s always really positive to add players back to your squad when you have been missing plenty of them in recent weeks.

“With Semi, we have one more option at center-back and he was playing in the first XI at the start of the season”, he said.

Ajayi’s return will be good news for Nigeria’s Super Eagles coach Jose Peseiro ahead of the 2026 World Cup qualifier against Lesotho and Zimbabwe.
