Sheff Wed: Osaze Urhoghide expected to leave

Sheff Wed: Osaze Urhoghide expected to leave - Championship

Sheffield Wednesday defender Osaze Urhoghide looks increasingly likely to leave the club this summer, with a new deal now not expected.

The Lowdown: Contract expiring

The 20-year-old has made 21 appearances for the Owls to date, but he only managed 12 Championship starts in 2020/21, as Darren Moore’s side were relegated to League One.

Urhoghide’s current Wednesday deal expires next month and an update has been provided on his future.

The Latest: New deal not expected

According to Football League World, it is looking ‘increasingly likely’ that the youngster will move on to pastures new during the summer transfer window.

Urhoghide has been offered a new deal at Hillsborough, so they do want to keep him, but both Premier League and Championship clubs are thought to be circling.

Watford and Cardiff City are both mentioned in the report.

The Verdict: Blow for the Owls

Losing Urhoghide would act as a blow for Wednesday, considering he is one of the most promising young players at the club, with Moore describing him as ‘immense’.

With a host of other players expected to move on, too, it is vital that the manager is able to keep hold of a nucleus of current players, building around them with new signings who are perhaps more experienced in League One.

It is hard to begrudge Urhoghide a move to a higher level, though, given Wednesday’s drop to the third tier of English football and his obvious potential at such a young age.
