The Blades will be eager to keep hold of a number of key players, as well as recruit some new talent as they look to bounce straight back up to the Premier League next season.

Meanwhile, ex-United loan star Dean Henderson gave an insight into being one of England's back-up options for Jordan Pickford at Euro 2020. The Man Utd 'keeper said: “Listen, that’s (serving as backup) my job. I’m here, I’m ready to play when called upon. Jordan deserves this tournament, obviously he was brilliant at the World Cup.

“I’ve got a lot of time for Jordan, obviously he’s a northern boy like me, we get on really well and he’s been fantastic in an England jersey, so he deserves this tournament.

“And I’ll be there ready, like Sam (Johnstone) will be as well, if the opportunity arises and one of us get on the pitch.

"But my aim for this tournament is to help Jordan in the best way I can and really support him for him to perform the best for our country because it’s the team work and hopefully it’ll make the dream work.

“100 per cent. 100 per cent, born ready (to fill in if required). Yeah, 100 per cent (capable of becoming both England and Man Utd's number one in the future)"

Here are today's biggest transfer stories and the latest team news involving Sheffield and the rest of the Championship, as the build-up to summer transfer window and next season continues.
