Sheffield United will hope to move a step closer towards a return to the Premier League when they look to overturn a first-leg deficit in their play-off semi-final against Nottingham Forest.

Goals from Jack Colback and Brennan Johnson put Forest in control of Saturday’s first meeting of the two sides but a late Sander Berge strike gave the Blades some hope of mounting a comeback at the City Ground on Tuesday night.

Despite not knowing what division they will compete in next season, plans for the summer transfer window are already well underway at Bramall Lane.

Some big decisions lie await for Blades boss Paul Heckingbottom and they will be made as soon as his side’s play-off bid is completed.

One Premier League defender has already been linked with a move to Bramall Lane after impressing during a loan spell in the Championship this season.

The Star takes a look at the latest transfer speculation involving the Blades and their current Championship rivals.
