Preston North End’s Osaze Urhoghide stance as other suitors handed boost with Sheffield Wednesday man
Osaze Urhoghide’s Sheffield Wednesday future still remains up in the air, even though he’s likely to be on his way out of the club, however it doesn’t sound like he’ll be on his way to Preston North End.
Preston are one of several clubs who are keeping a close eye on the talented 20-year-old, with numerous teams in the UK and abroad keen on potentially making a move to bring him on board.
The Star has previously reported that a set amount of less than £200,000 in compensation would come Wednesday’s way if he was to move outside of England next month, however it remains to be seen what kind of figure they’d end up with should be move domestically.
Club Brugge and Sporting Clube de Portugal have been linked with the former AFC Wimbledon man abroad, whilst Leeds United and Crystal Palace are among the local teams keeping a close eye on him.
According to Lancashire Live, ‘an enquiry is about as far as things went for PNE’ with regards to the Lilywhites’ interest in Urhoghide, suggesting that the signings of Sepp van den Berg on loan and Liam Lindsay mean that they won’t be pursuing him any further.
Wednesday had been keen to keep hold of the young defender for next season as they prepare for life in League One, however he rejected their latest contract offer and it’s thought that talks have now reached an impasse.
The Owls return to Middlewood Road for test on Friday before heading out to Wales for a preseason training camp.
