Known as ‘Big C’ by his team-mates, Odunze’s path to Leicester City was unique in comparison to others, but the goalkeeper made the most of the opportunities provided to move up from the Under-18s to become a regular in the Under-21s.

The American made four appearances for the Club's Development Squad last term. After his first outing of the season in the Papa Johns Trophy against Barrow, Odunze kept a clean sheet at Derby County in Premier League 2 in March 2022, before being named in three UEFA Europa Conference League matchday squads with the first team. 

Starting 2022/23 as first choice goalkeeper for the Development Squad, his progress continued with consistent performances, including a shutout in a 4-0 victory over Blackburn Rovers in August 2022 and helping Leicester's youngsters record a penalty shootout victory at Bradford City in the Papa Johns Trophy two months later.
