Leeds, Crystal Palace keen as Sheffield Wednesday defender Urhoghide rejects Benfica

Sheffield Wednesday defender Osaze Urhoghide is ready to make a Premier League move.

The youngster has turned down an approach from Benfica as he wishes to remain in England.

The Sheffield Star says the 20-year-old, who recently rejected Wednesday's offer of a renewal, has Leeds United, Crystal Palace and Preston North End as just some of the clubs that have been mentioned when it comes to possible destinations.

Urhoghide has taken the decision that he wants to stay in the UK rather than venture abroad for his next move – although a final verdict on which club he'll be at has not yet been made.

Wednesday will be due some compensation for the Dutch-born defender with his deal to expire this week.
