Celtic centre-back Osaze Urhoghide may seek a loan move away from Parkhead in the New Year, according to The Scottish Sun.
The Lowdown: Urhoghide’s struggles
However, the 21-year-old, who rejected moves to the Premier League to sign for the Hoops, is yet to make a senior appearance in green and white and has had to make do with a place on the bench at the very best.
The 6 foot 1 beast had been a regular for Sheffield Wednesday prior to joining Celtic, and it now seems as if he may look to depart on a temporary basis to gain first-team football.
Should Celtic send Urhoghide out on loan?
Yes, no brainer!
No, keep him at Lennoxtown!
The Latest: Loan exit?
The Scottish Sun shared a story on Monday evening, looking at Urhoghide and Liam Shaw.
When it came to the pair, they suggested they’re not yet at the levels of those ahead of them in Postecoglou’s pecking order and could push for a loan exit if their situations remain unchanged.
The Verdict: Best for all involved?
Urhoghide, the senior of the pair mentioned, could do with playing first-team football following his breakthrough at Hillsborough last season, so a loan exit in January may suit all parties.
He’s yet to get going at Parkhead, so a change of scenery for the second half of the campaign and a run of games could benefit the centre-back ahead of the 2022/23 season.
Urhoghide is battling the likes of Carl Starfelt, Cameron Carter-Vickers, Stephen Welsh, Liam Scales and possibly Christopher Jullien soon for a place in the side, so on that basis, a loan exit could be a shrewd call.
