Known as ‘Big C’ by his team-mates, Odunze’s path to Leicester City is unique in comparison to others, but the goalkeeper is making the most of the opportunities provided. The American has been involved in several senior squads in 2021/22 and is mainly associated with the Club's Development Squad.

After making his first appearance of the season in the EFL Trophy against Barrow, Odunze kept a clean sheet in a goalless draw away at Derby County in Premier League 2 in March 2022, before being named in the UEFA Europa Conference League matchday squad for both legs of Leicester City's last-16 tie with Rennes that month.
