Celtic defender Osaze Urhoghide is a target for Sky Bet League One side Morecambe, who are managed by ex-Motherwell manager Stephen Robinson.

Looking to trim his squad ahead of the end of the month, Ange Postecoglou has already managed to loan Liam Shaw out to cinch Premiership rivals Motherwell and Ewan Henderson to Hibernian whilst multiple other squad players look set for the chop.

Vasilis Barkas, Albian Ajeti, and Boli Bolongoli look to be on their way out before too long. However, Urhoghide could be the next to head through the Parkhead exit door following recent reports.

English third-tier side Morecambe have expressed an interest in taking Osaze Urhoghide on loan until the end of the current campaign. The Dutchman hasn’t been afforded many opportunities for regular game-time in Glasgow, making just one appearance for the Hoops at home to Real Betis in the Europa League.

Regular minutes is crucial for Urhoghide if he is going to make it at Celtic

Unlikely to become a first-team regular in the second half of the season, it probably makes sense for the 21-year-old to get some minutes under his belt for the next few months. Urhoghide finds himself in a strange limbo at the Hoops, being too old and probably too good for the B team but too inexperienced and raw to be trusted as a squad player.

Morecambe may not be the pinnacle of football by any means but at least they would give him a chance to continue his development by playing every week. That can only be a good thing for Celtic and Ange Postecloglou.
