The deal includes an option-to-buy at the end of the season.
“It is an incredibly exciting development that Randers FC is working on, and I look forward to helping the team in a close and exciting match program,” Odey told the club’s website.
” I have only heard good things about the club and I hope I can quickly contribute goals and assists so we can make the fans even more proud of the team.
Søren Pedersen, sports and commercial director added: “We have been looking for a striker with speed and have for a while been in dialogue with Genk about Stephen, who is an exciting player who is fast, good in the man-man game and is also a skilled finisher, which he has shown in both Swiss and French football.
” We are happy that we have managed to get him to Randers, and that we can now drive him into the squad and get him in action after the international break.”
Odey has struggled for regular playing time since linking up with Genk with from Swiss club FC Zurich in 2019.
