What can Celtic expect from new signing Osaze Urhoghide? Some Sheff Wed fans have their say
Celtic have completed the signing of Osaze Urhoghide on a four-year deal.
The Hoops have snapped up the 20-year-old defender from Sheffield Wednesday.
Urhoghide, whose Hillsborough contract had expired, becomes Ange Postecoglou’s first signing at Celtic.
Born in the Netherlands, Urhoghide moved to England as a child and began his career at AFC Wimbledon.
He joined Sheffield Wednesday in 2019 and went on to make 21 appearances for the club.
According to Glasgow Live, the likes of Benfica and Leeds United wanted Urhoghide, but he turned them down to join Celtic.
A versatile defender, Urhoghide’s primary position is at centre-back, but he can also play on the left and right side of defence.
