Morgan Fox is not concerned by the lack of transfer activity at Wednesday, while United have put in a bid for Waghorn

Sheffield United have reportedly tabled a £5million bid for Martyn Waghorn, as Ipswich Town started monitoring replacements for the striker over the weekend.

Although the fee is much lower than Town want, Waghorn is said to be keen to join Chris Wilder's side and the Suffolk club started tracking Barnsley's Tom Bradshaw as an alternative.

West Brom look less likely to sign 'keeper Simon Moore for the Blades after he was on the bench for their friendly against Mansfield Town and Luke Steele did not return for a second trial match.

Meanwhile at Sheffield Wednesday, Jos Luhukay could be facing a headache when he has to choose his starting goalkeeper as Keiren Westwood, Joe Wildsmith and Cameron Dawson fight for the shirt.

It was expected one of the goalkeepers would need to leave before the start of the season, but despite other departures from the squad, that is yet to happen.

Defender Morgan Fox has said he is not concerned by the lack of transfer activity at Hillsborough, insisting the squad are confident of their ability going into the new season.
