SHEFFIELD United manager Danny Wilson has admitted the League One club can not afford expensive mistakes in the transfer market as they
attempt to comply with new financial regulations.
But Wilson, who was last night linked with Middlesbrough right-back Tony McMahon, vowed to leave no stone unturned in a bid to deliver Championship football to Bramall Lane.
“We all know who the best players are,” Wilson said. “It’s not rocket science.
“But the fact is that the vast majority of us can not afford them so what you have to do is look elsewhere for people who may have slipped under the radar or, who for some other reason, might not be getting a game but can do a job for you.”
Wilson added: “We can not make too many errors and, to be fair, I don’t think we’ve made too many in the market either. When there isn’t a limitless amount of money to play with then you know you’ve got to get the majority (of transfers) right.”
Wilson told The Star before departing United’s training camp in Malta that he hoped to recruit up to three new faces within the space of seven days. Crewe striker Shaun Miller is on the verge of joining the club but United refuse to confirm or deny they have approached McMahon.
