Currebt Squad 16 Justin Shaibu


Justin Kwabena Shaibu (born 28 October 1997) is a Danish professional footballer  who plays for Walsall on Loan from Brentford. He plays as a forward. He began his senior career at HB Koge  and is a current Denmark U20 international.

Shaibu began his career at Vallensbæk IF, before joining the  Danish Division 1 club  HB Koge, in their Academy, at the age of 14. He won his maiden call into the first team squad for a league match versus Horsens on 31 August 2014 and went on to make 9 appearances during the 2014-15 season. Shaibu won the club’s Talent of the Year award for the 2014 calendar year. Shaibu played predominantly for the U19 team during 2015-16 and in a season disrupted by injuries he still managed 12 first team appearances and was rewarded with a new three-year contract midway through the campaign. He departed the  Herfolge Stadion in July 2016, having made 21 appearances in two seasons.

On 18 July 2016, Shaibu moved to England to sign a two-year B Team contract at  Championship club  Brentford for an undisclosed fee, reported to be £40,000. He received his maiden call into the first team squad as a substitute for an  EFL Cup first round match versus Exeter City on 9 August 2016 and made his debut when he replaced Emmanuel Ledesma in extra time during the eventual 1–0 defeat. After five goals in 12 appearances for the B team over the following six months, a lack of fit recognised strikers at the club meant that Shaibu made a minor breakthrough into the first team squad between February and April 2017 and he made four substitute appearances, before an ankle injury ended his season He scored 10 goals in 18 B team appearances during the 2016-17 season and signed a new three-year contract on 5 May 2017, which saw him promoted into the first team squad for the 2017-18 season

Shaibu’s first appearance of the 2017–18 season came in an EFL Cup first round match versus AFC Wimbledon on 8 August 2017 and his entry onto the pitch during extra time was the first occasion that a fourth substitute had been utilised by Brentford in a competitive fixture. In the final minutes, he scored the first senior goal of his career to seal a 3–1 victory and the strike made him the first-ever fourth substitute to score in a competitive match in England. Shaibu continued in a substitute role, making four further appearances, before dropping out of the squad in October due to injuries. He departed on loan for the rest of the season on 29 January 2018.

On 29 January 2018, Shaibu joined League One club Walsall on loan until the end of the 2017-18 season. The following night, he made his debut as a half time substitute for a  Kieron Morris in a 3–1 defeat to Blackburn Rovers

Shaibu won 9 caps for Denmark at both U17 and U18 level and scored one goal, which came with the opener in a 2–0 U18 friendly  win over Montenegro  on 25 September 2014. In early October 2017, Shaibu was called into the U20 squad for two friendlies versus Sweden and appeared in both matches, scoring one goal.

Shaibu stated that he likes “to think I play like Romelu Lukaku . I have got great pace, a lot of energy, a lot of power and I am a great finisher”.

Morris was born in Hereford and grew up in Leominster, Herefordshire. Part of the Hereford United Centre of Excellence, he played youth football for local club Leominster Minors before being spotted by Manchester United’s scouting network.

Morris joined Wrexham on loan until the end of the season on 30 January 2015.
