Denis Frimpong Odoi (born 27 May 1988) is a Belgian footballer who plays for Fulham of the Football League Championship after being transferred from Lokeren.[2][3] His father is from Ghana and his mother is from Belgium.

On July 14, 2016, it was announced that Odoi had signed for English Championship side Fulham. Odoi signed for an undisclosed fee, signing a 3-year contract with an option of a further 12 months.[citation needed]

Odoi is a right-footed full-back who can operate on either side. He mainly played at left-back for the past 3 years for his former club, Lokeren.

On August 5, 2016, Odoi made his debut for Fulham in a 1-0 win against Newcastle United- his debut drawing acclaim for his "outrageous display of skill" controlling the ball off of his back shoulder. [4] He scored his first goal for Fulham in a 3-2 win against Wigan Athletic on 11 February 2017.[5]
