Danish Under 20’s forward Justin began his career with Danish Division One side HB Koge and even won their Talent of the Year award in 2014, in his breakthrough campaign.
The explosive striker would earn a move to England with Brentford in 2016 and then a callup into the first team just a month later. He started on the bench against Exeter City in the EFL Cup and replaced Emmanuel Ledesma to make his debut.
Following 10 goals in just 18 games for the B team, Shaibu became a regular on the bench for the Bees first team, which earned him a fresh three-year contract. The striker has also spent time on loan in League One with Walsall.
A tall and powerful striker with great pace and energy, Shaibu has stated that he models his playing style on Romelu Lukaku.
Following an opening day win over Dagenham & Redbridge, Shaibu’s pace and power upfront will add a deadly and physical presence to the Wood’s attack.
