Here are the latest Championship transfer rumours from around the web...

Sheffield United are continuing their pursuit of a number of attacking options, with Leeds United's Kemar Roofe emerging as another potential target for Chris Wilder, reports Football Insider.

Roofe, who has two years left to run on his Leeds contract, finished last season as their top scorer with 14 goals in 30 starts.

The 25-year-old joins Scott Hogan, Sam Gallagher and Sam Winnall all at the top of Chris Wilder's wish list this summer.

United have maintained their interest in Hogan, who was left out of Aston Villa's preseason trip to Portugal because of a groin injury but may need to be offloaded as the Birmingham club look to meet Financial Fair Play requirements.

Meanwhile, speculation over the future of Sheffield Wednesday striker Sam Winnall has divided opinion among both sets of fans in Sheffield.

Winnall spent last season on loan at Derby County and moved to Hillsborough from Barnsley in 2017.

Sheffield Wednesday have missed out on West Ham defender Reece Burke, who was announced as a Hull City player yesterday.

Burke had been linked to a number of Championship clubs, including Wednesday, Aston Villa and Derby County after an impressive season on loan at Bolton Wanderers last term.
