Osaze Urhoghide Joins Scottish Club Celtic

Celtic have announced the signing of Osaze Urhoghide on a four–year contract from Sheffield Wednesday, reports Completesports.com.

Urhoghidehas attracted interest from a number of top clubs in England and in Europe, but he opted to join Ange Postecoglou’s Celtic team.

Speaking of the new signing, Celtic manager Ange Postecoglou said: “It’s great. He’s someone that the club’s been tracking for a while and when I came on board, I managed to have a meeting with him and he’s a good young man, he’s very ambitious.

“He’s just beginning his football career but he shows all the attributes on and off the field to want to become a top player, so it’s great to get him here. He can play a couple of positions at the back and, most importantly, he’s really keen to learn and develop and I think this will be a great environment for him.

“He’s a modern defender. He’s good athletically, he’s mobile, he’s quick and he wants to get on the ball. He can play a couple of different positions, and from our perspective, and the way we want to play our football, there are certain things I look for in players irrespective of age, and he’s got some really good attributes to be a top defender.

“The most important thing is, he’s got a real desire to reach the very top. He’s excited about joining the club, which is important to me because that’s the first thing I want to hear from players, that they’re really keen to join us.”

Born in The Netherlands, Urhoghide moved to England as a child, and his professional football career began with AFC Wimbledon before joining Sheffield Wednesday in 2019, where he went on to make 21 appearances for the club.

    Congratulations Osaze Urhoghide!

    In a few months ahead another Osaze will emerge in the colours of Nigerian national team, it will not be called Odemwingie this time but URHOGHIDE!

    I have really been tracking this guy and I am very sure he is going to be a very good replacement to Balogun!

    I don’t know on how tunde adelakun does his potential super eagles scouting works as i always feel that staying at home here without much arsenal on the scouting job unlike him, I do the scouting even more…

    Urhoghide is a one-time nig u23 invitee!
    He was unable to show up due to an injury!
