Sheffield Wednesday look set to lose Osaze Urhoghide in the summer after the defender rejected their latest contract offer.

The 20-year-old was one of few positives for the Owls in an otherwise dismal season as the club were relegated to League One on the final day of the campaign.
There had been a hope that Wednesday could centre the rebuild around the younger players at Hillsborough, but Yorkshire Live have revealed that it won’t include Urhoghide, who is poised to depart.
They state how there is plenty of interest in the player from clubs higher up and Urhoghide will now decide his next move after talks ended with the Owls.
As you would expect, this news was not what the supporters wanted to hear, particularly with another talented youngster, Liam Shaw, having agreed a pre-contract with Celtic.
What club do these 21 former Sheffield Wednesday players ply their trade at now?
The blame from the fans lies at the door of the owner, who has failed to tie down these players to longer deals. Here we look at some of the reaction from Twitter…
Lets face it Chansiri doesn't rate youth. Offering 1 year deals then they leave on a free isn't the way to run a football club. Next season will be the same with Hunt. Brennan. Waldock & if Hagan & Dawodu sign they will be gone too.

Good luck to the lad where ever he turns up next. Another example of the sheer incompetence at SWFC

Can't question loyalty when you don't get paid on time for months. He will have better offers on the table.

To be honest if you're not getting paid. I don't blame him. Chansiri well done fantastic job you've done by destroying the fans trust. Go now.

This is what happens when you let academy players get to the final year of their contract before offering them a new one

Getting beyond a joke to lose talent like Osaze. He really cares about doing well, no doubt why he’s refused a contract
