Blades striker Oli McBurnie is one player who's been tipped to move on, with Scottish Premiership champions said to be keen on the ex-Swansea City marksman, while United midfielder Sander Berge is expected to move on, with Arsenal - who missed out on European football by one point - among the favourites to land the Norway international.

New boss Slavisa Jokanovic is renowned for playing some dazzling football in the second tier, and could be exactly the man the Blades need to turn around their fortunes.

Discussing the squad he's inherited, the former Fulham and Watford boss said: “In general I know this team and these players.

“Chris (Wilder) made a fantastic job with this team for Sheffield United. A lot of the time this team played the same shape and found the benefits from working with Chris.

“What is really important for me in taking the decision to come to Sheffield is the group of the players. They have power and speed and aggression and, on our side, the staff can give them instructions and knowledge and improvement to be competitive and be serious candidates to be fighting for the promotion places.”Here are today's biggest transfer stories and the latest team news involving Sheffield United and the rest of the Championship, as the reaction to last season and the build-up to summer transfer window continues:
