Sheffield Wednesday have opened talks with Osaze Urhoghide over a new deal, but the news may not be welcomed by Moses Odubajo.

The 26-year-old struggled for playing time in his debut season and is out of contract in 2021, so his future at Hillsborough may be uncertain if Garry Monk is planning to keep Urhoghide for the long-term.

Who did Sheffield Wednesday sign Josh Windass on loan from?

Odubajo joined Wednesday on a free transfer from Brentford last summer and has gone on to make 17 appearances in all competitions. The 26-year-old looked surplus to requirements when the January transfer window came around and was linked with a move away, but Odubajo ended up staying at the club.

He’s made only two appearances since December 2019, however, after falling behind Liam Palmer in the pecking order, so he may be competing with Urhoghide for a backup role next season. If Wednesday are happy tying the 19-year-old down for many years, Odubajo might have to consider his options.

Palmer’s deal at Hillsborough runs until 2021 and he made 28 appearances across the board before the Covid-19 pandemic halted the season, so he should keep his spot at right-back.

The 28-year-old has spent ten years in Wednesday’s first-team and has made a total of 253 appearances since he rose through the youth ranks. It remains to be seen who Monk will pick to provide cover in 2020/21, however.
