Osaze Urhoghide’s performances in the second half of the season were a rare shining light in a difficult season for the Owls, who finished bottom of the Championship and face the prospect of a major rebuild in League One.

The Star has previously revealed interest from a host of clubs both domestic and in Europe, from Leeds United, Crystal Palace, Sporting Lisbon and Club Brugge.

Now Football League World report that interest has also been shown by Cardiff City and Premier League new boys Watford.

Sheffield Wednesday youngster Osaze Urhoghide is the subject of interest to a number of clubs.

Urhoghide has held positive meetings with Owls boss Darren Moore as to his future and is understood to be in no rush to make a decision on where it may lie.

It is understood he previously batted away advances from European teams attempting to sign him on pre-contract terms earlier this year in order to concentrate on Wednesday’s survival effort.

Wednesday have confirmed that he has been offered a new contract at the club but the news of further interest prompts increased worries the club could lose out on another prized asset.

The Star revealed this morning that highly-rated under-23 striker Charles Hagan is also the subject of interest from a host of clubs including Charlton Athletic, Stoke City and Brentford.

Watford are also reported to have shown an interest in Wednesday winger Adam Reach, who was confirmed to be leaving the club in their 2020/21 ‘released and retained’ list.
