Having previously played for Arsenal's youth team Abdulla joined West Ham as a sixteen year-old in 2008.[4] He signed his first professional contract, with West Ham, in the summer of 2011.[5] In August 2011 he signed a loan deal with Swindon Town until January 2012.[4] Abdulla made his debut on 3 September 2011 in a 3–2 home win against Rotherham United.[6] In January 2012 Abdulla joined Dagenham & Redbridge on-loan.[7] On his return to West Ham he was released by the club but signed a permanent short-term deal, until the end of the 2011–12 season, with Dagenham in March 2012.[8] In May 2012, Abdulla was released by Dagenham due to the expiry of his contract.[9]

On 4 July 2012, Abdulla signed for Barnet.[10] He scored his first goal for Barnet against Salisbury City on 28 September 2013.[11] His second goal was the winner in a 1–0 win at Hereford United on 19 October.[12] Abdulla was released at the end of the 2013-14 season, though he was invited back for 2014-15 pre-season training.[13]
