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
Urhoghide’s current Wednesday deal expires next month and an update has been provided on his future.
Will Josh Windass stay at Sheffield Wednesday?
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.
In other news, Sheff Wed are reportedly interested in signing an intriguing attacking player this summer. Read more here.
