Former Sheffield Wednesday midfielder Carlton Palmer has told The Transfer Tavern in an exclusive interview that Osaze Urhoghide was wise to leave the Owls for Celtic this summer.
The 21-year-old central defender joined the Scottish giants on a free transfer earlier this month after his contract expired, linking up with team-mate Liam Shaw once again.
Wednesday were desperate to keep hold of Urhoghide, with the Yorkshire club posting on their official website back in May that the Dutch youngster had been offered a new deal.
Has Urhoghide made the right decision?
Urhoghide opted to sign for Celtic in the end, though, and Palmer believes it was the right decision.
Speaking exclusively to TT about the player’s move, the ex-Wednesday star said:
“It’s just indicative of what’s going on at Sheffield Wednesday. He’s not going to stay. I mean, listening to the articles, I think he had a lot of offers and some from the Premier League.
“He’s wise to go somewhere where he’s going to play and develop, you know. But they were never going to stay at Sheffield Wednesday once they got relegated if they’ve got down to the final year of the contract.”
As for incomings, Darren Moore has been able to strengthen the left-back position in the current transfer window.
The Owls confirmed earlier this week that they have signed Jaden Brown from Carabao Cup opponents Huddersfield Town.
