Here's the latest transfer rumours from around the web...

Sheffield United are said to be on the verge of signing Brentford defender John Egan, who previously spent time on loan at Bramall Lane in 2012.

Meanwhile, the Mirror report that Blades centre-back Jack O'Connell could be on his way to Brighton for £6million.

Sheffield Wednesday received a boost yesterday with the return of Steven Fletcher, Gary Hooper and Kieran Lee returned to training.

In the absence of any rumoured signings, returning players could prove essential for Jos Luhukay's side.
