Sheffield United have lodged a bid for Fulham defender Dan Burn, The Star understands.
Sources in London report Bramall Lane's hierarchy made an official approach for the 23-year-old earlier this morning, soon after Richard Stearman of Wolverhampton Wanderers opened talks about a move to Kit Symons' side.
Burn joined Fulham from Darlington in 2011 and his since represented both Yeovil Town and Birmingham City on loan. David Edgar completed a temporary transfer from St Andrews to United, where he is scheduled to spent the rest of the season, last month.
Burn, who is six foot seven inches tall, was a member of the Yeovil side team which gained promotion to the Championship via the play-offs in 2013.
Contrary to reports, Burn has not undergone a medical at United, who are also understood to be pursuing alternative options. Indeed, a scenario could arise whereby they attempt to strike a loan deal for Burn if permanent deals for other names on the manager's wanted list prove elusive.
