Sheffield United rumours: Spurs’ rivals could snatch Blades star, Millwall handed boost in striker chase
Sheffield United are stepping up their efforts to secure new signings, as new manager Slavisa Jokanovic look to strengthen his side over the summer month.
The Blades are preparing for a relentless season in the ruthlessly competitive Championship, and will be desperate to get off to a flying start and establish themselves towards the top of the table.
Meanwhile, ex-Blades defender John Brayford, now of Burton Albion, has been discussing the best footballing experiences of his career. He said: “Sheffield has two huge football clubs and as a whole, with my life, I would choose Sheffield United for sure.
“For the whole experience. The times we had, the trips we had, the people I met. Even behind the scenes. I still speak to some now. Football is a part of your life, it’s not everything. And you meet good people along the way.”
“Once Bramall Lane is going… honestly I haven't played in a better atmosphere in a football stadium, ever. The only one that comes close is probably St James' Park but [at Bramall Lane] it's like the ball's being drawn into the net. And you get an extra five per cent from that.”
“I remember turning up at Bramall Lane and it was like: ‘Yeah, we are going to win’. It wasn't even a question in our minds. When everyone was behind us, it was like we were playing 20 against 11. It felt like that, truthfully.”
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 the summer transfer window activity and build-up to the eagerly-anticipated new season continues:
