An update on Osaze Urhoghide’s Sheffield Wednesday future

Urhoghide, who is just 20-years-old, has been one of the bright lights in what has been a largely dull season for the Owls, putting in a number of impressive performances and establishing himself as a first team player in the Wednesday setup.

The Star understands, however, that talks are very much underway with regards to a new deal for the Dutch-born centre back, with the Owls having offered him a new contract in an attempt to make sure that he’s still playing in blue and white next season.

As things stand nothing has been agreed, but it is thought that he is fully focused on the club and their current predicament rather than worrying about what lies ahead when the season ends, despite growing interest from elsewhere in the UK as well as abroad.

The general understanding is that some players have been wary of penning new deals given the uncertainty that lies ahead, but the appointment of a man like Darren Moore will certainly have gone some way to placate any fears that several may have had.

With Urhoghide, it remains to be seen exactly what lies ahead, but with a focus on regular gametime – something he’s now getting at Hillsborough – then a new deal may well be on the horizon.
