The 20-year-old defender, who made 21 appearances for the Owls across two seasons, joined in 2019 after his release from AFC Wimbledon.

It became clear some weeks ago, though, that he was likely to move on having failed to agree a new contract with the Owls. A move to Celtic could see Wednesday handed a compensation fee of around £200k.

Urhoghide, who was a popular figure among Wednesdayites in his brief time at the club, posted on social media: “Thank you Sheffield Wednesday and all those involved over the last two years from staff to fans.
