SHEFFIELD United manager Danny Wilson has promised to be “transparent” in his dealings with supporters as Bramall Lane enters one of the most defining periods in its recent history.

Having warned earlier this week that the South Yorkshire club face a challenging summer both on and off the pitch following last month’s defeat in the League One play-off final, Wilson claimed United have been “running on empty” after becoming almost entirely dependent upon the funding of owner Kevin McCabe.

But he said: “We’ll be transparent.

“If we can’t bring someone in then we’ll let people know.

“You’ve got to be clear. You can’t be all cloak and dagger.

“I’ll always be straight with people.”

United have identified several transfer targets but, with Kevin McDonald, Lee Williamson and Chris Porter still to reveal whether they will accept contract offers, Wilson must wait to discover exactly how much money is at his disposal.

The former Northern Ireland international and his board of directors are also charged with ensuring United comply with new financial regulations set to be adopted by the Football League.

Wilson said: “I believe in the players we’ve got here and we’ve also been looking for some time now to see who might be available and who would suit us.

“It’s an on-going process.”
