Sheffield United have been linked with a move for a talented midfielder by the foreign press.

The player in question is Olympiacos midfielder Mady Camara, who has previously been linked with a move to the Premier League with Watford.

Greek publication Sdna suggest that the Blades hold a ‘strong’ interest in the player, and report that developments to the transfer are expected in the coming days.

The report says that Watford offered around £8m for the 22-year-old midfielder in the summer window – it remains to be seen whether the Hornets will follow up their interest this month.

The Blades are expected to bolster their squad, with Everton defender Mason Holgate another reported target. Holgate has played regularly for Everton in recent weeks though, casting doubt on his availability for transfer.

In other Blades transfer window news, Chris Wilder has ruled out a move away for striker Billy Sharp.

Championship side Leeds United had been linked with a return for Sharp, but Wilder was firm in his dismissal of the idea.

He said: “There are hundreds of reports linking people everywhere. Billy’s a fantastic player, he doesn’t want to go anywhere and I don’t want him to go anywhere.

“So as far as I’m concerned that’s the end of the conversation with him.”
