Wilder on Callum Robinson’s future

The striker spent the second half of last season on loan at West Brom, and helped them win promotion to the Premier League. He has been linked with a return to The Hawthorns but is with United in Scotland

Callum had a fantastic half of the season with West Bromwich Albion. But he is a Sheffield United player, he played the other night and until that changes he's with us. It's important that we improve at the top of the pitch, so a couple might be going out, and a couple coming in.

Chris Wilder on the transfer window

It's challenging from Sheffield United's point of view because we' are trying to establish ourselves in the Premier League. We'll try and be smart as we have to be and find a few nuggets. I'll keep asking and pushing as all managers do. I'll have a look down the back of the settee to see what we can get! But it is fair to say Aaron Ramsdale is our big signing this summer.

Freeman ‘on brink’ of move away from the Lane

Luke Freeman is on the verge of joining Nottingham Forest on loan, sources in the Midlands have suggested today.

Forest originally wanted to sign Freeman on a permanent basis, but it looks like they’ll have to make do with a loan deal for the midfielder instead. Freeman struggled to dislodge John Fleck from the United midfield last season and only made a handful of appearances in the Premier League.
