Chris Wilder insists he is still confident of making “one or two” additions before the end of the January transfer window next week.

The Sheffield United manager has drawn-up a list of players he believes can consolidate United’s position in the Premier League ahead of the season run-in.

So far United’s only activity has been to bring in Jack Rodwell on a free transfer, although Wilder and his transfer team are still working hard on potential arrivals.

Jack Robinson of Nottingham Forest is the latest name to be linked with the Blades.

“We’re still looking,” Wilder confirmed.

“I’ll work with the board and if I don’t think players are available or we can’t get them for financial reasons, we move on.

“We have a list of players and we’re looking to strengthen for the second part of the season.

“I’ll maximise what I’ve been given because we can’t stand still in terms of the group – I’m no different to any manager around the country. We’re always looking to improve the players we have, and bring more through the door.

“I’ll ask the question to improve but I won’t sign players for the sake of it. It’s always a moving market but we’ll get one or two in, definitely, in the next week.”
