Glasgow Celtic defender Urhoghide arrives in Belgium to complete move to KVO
Belgian First Division outfit KV Oostende are on the verge of announcing the signing of 2019 Nigeria U23 invitee Osaze Urhoghide who is already in Belgium ahead of his unveiling.

According to The Scotsman, KVO are poised to bolster their defensive ranks before the close of the January transfer window with the loan capture of the Nigerian center-back.

Urhoghide has found game time difficult to come by since joining Glasgow Celtic from Sheffield Wednesday, with his only first team appearance to date coming against Real Betis in the Europa League.

The 21-year-old has been included in seventeen matchday squads without him being utilized off the bench by manager Ange Postecoglou.

Italian Serie A club Hellas Verona were also interested in signing Urhoghide but he has opted to join KV Oostende.

Many clubs explored the possibility of signing him on a permanent basis but Celtic turned down the offers and have sanctioned a loan deal with KV Oostende without an option to buy at the end of the 2021-2022 season.

The Nigeria Football Federation handed a maiden call-up to Urhoghide to join a training camp before a 2019 U23 Africa Cup of Nations qualifying match against Libya.
