Sheffield United are reportedly in a two horse race to sign Huddersfield Town midfielder Jonathan Hogg. Former Terriers boss David Wagner also wants the 30-year-old at new club Schalke.

Meanwhile, the Blades have apparently had a £4million bid for QPR’s Luke Freeman rejected, as per West London Sport. The versatile midfielder is on boss Chris Wilder’s radar, but it’s thought the Loftus Road club want significantly more for their star man.

In non-transfer related news, United have unveiled their new shirt sponsors for the 2019/2020 Premier League season. Union Standard Group will be the new name on the front and sleeves of the Blades shirts next season.
