In an exclusive interview with The Transfer Tavern, former Sheffield Wednesday midfielder Carlton Palmer has described the exits of Osaze Urhoghide and Liam Shaw as “horrendous”.
Both players officially joined Celtic this summer after their contracts at Hillsborough expired, with the former’s transfer confirmed at the start of the month.
Gutted to see Urhoghide and Shaw leave?
For Palmer, to lose both players for nothing is ridiculous. On the two departures, the ex-Wednesday star exclusively told TT:
“It’s horrendous what happened with him and Shaw, both young players who are at the club and have been allowed to basically leave for free.
“I’ve seen a quote from Darren Moore basically saying it’s criminal that these guys were allowed to run their contracts down.
“You’ve got two good young players there who are the future of the club, future money. Surely you don’t let them get down to the last year of their contract?”
Urhoghide, 21, and Shaw, 20, they both certainly did look like the future of Wednesday.
The Celtic duo were already in the Wednesday first team, a Wednesday first team playing in the Championship. In a division lower, you would have expected both to feature, continue developing and perhaps help the Owls win promotion.
