Osaze Urhoghide may be unsure of his role at Sheffield Wednesday after losing his place in the first-team after a number of poor performances. The 19-year-old finds himself low down the pecking order, has lost the faith of Garry Monk and is entering the last year of his deal.
Urhoghide impressed in his debut for the Owls but fell by the wayside are struggling for consistency, but a lot of supporters from the Sheffield Wednesday Fans Forum believe he deserves another chance to turn things around at Hillsborough.
Wayne Lee: “Keep him.”
Finlay Derbyshire: “I’d keep (the) young lad. Promising prospect.”
Kj Schmitz: “Keep. Give him some time. Let him develop.”
Gav Carder: “Has masses of potential but needs to work on things such as spatial awareness when defending…Maybe suited to a more attacking role?”
Alan Stacey: “Saw him at Brighton and Leeds. Well worth keeping.”
Keiron Wilcock: “There’s a player in there somewhere. Would be a shame to lose him. Imo, he’d blossom better under a different coach.”
Derek Prigmore: “19-year-old with potential. Keep him.”
Charlie Wroe: “Bring Osaze up to the bench.”
Philip Bradish: “Still young with lots to learn and work with. Keep him. Loaning him out may do him good next season.”
Stewart Robinson: “Must be kept.”
Max Lloyd Booth: “Extend his contract by another year and send him out on loan.”
Paul Benton: “Keep.”
Dean Hudson: “Keep.”
Andy Jay: “100% keep.”
Tim Shepherd: “One for the future. Played against Leeds and looked fantastic. Just needs game time.”
Jack Saberton: “Good young player.”
Paul Warner: “We need to keep anyone with promise.”
The right-back joined Wednesday on a free transfer from AFC Wimbledon last summer and has gone on to make four appearances in all competitions.
As per Transfermarkt, Urhoghide made his debut in the Owls’ FA Cup win over Brighton & Hove Albion (January 4, 2020) while his last outing came in their 3-0 defeat to Reading (February 15). He was an unused substitute five times, suspended for one game and left out of the matchday squad a further two times.
The 19-year-old has been criticised by supporters for a couple of poor performances and fell behind Liam Palmer & Moses Odubajo in Monk’s estimates as a result. Urhoghide has a difficult task getting first-team football next season, but it remains to be seen if Wednesday would loan him out instead.
