OSAZE URHOGHIDE has revealed that he would be open to moving to KV Oostende permanently. His loan in Belgium is set to expire at the end of the season, but the club can buy the player.

Playing one competitive game for Celtic, it was thought he would be sent on a straight loan to aid his development. However, the option-to-buy clause installed in his contract alludes to the player not having a future at the club.

The defender arrived in the summer from Sheffield Wednesday, regularly paying down south; he has found it hard to continue doing so north of the border.

Speaking to the Oostende’s website, the player said;

“I will be very happy if I still play at Ostend next season. I’m having a great time here, but I also felt great in Celtic! I now have to try to prove myself, so that KV Oostende will certainly consider the purchase option. And then we’ll see what happens.”

Aged 21, he will want to be playing regularly, and his career should move on if he can’t do that at Celtic.

It’s a bold step by the player. It seems as if he is trying to force a move to his loan club. There has been no mention of a fee yet, and it’ll be interesting to see what Celtic valued the player at.
