OSAZE URHOGHIDE's loan move to Dundee from Celtic has stalled. 

The Hoops fringe man looked set to join the Dark Blues on a temporary deal until the end of the season. 

However, boss James McPake has revealed that the player has stalled the move for the moment.

The deal between the clubs is believed to have been agreed, but the Dutch defender has yet to make up his mind on his future. 

It's not the only transfer frustration McPake has endured this month, with Sam Cosgrove knocking back the Dens Park side. 

They have managed to sign Jay Chapman from Inter Miami. 

But Urhoghide has yet to commit to a loan at Dundee.

McPake told the media: “We spoke to Celtic regarding Osaze. It’s got to the point where we have spoken to the player, spoken to the agent and it looked like it was going to happen. 

“It has stalled unfortunately, at the minute.”
