Sheffield United transfer rumours: Blades make double enquiry, EFL striker linked
We’re almost halfway through the January transfer window, and rumour mill is really starting to pick up some pace.
From Sheffield United’s perspective, their current position at the foot of the table looks to have really cranked up the level of speculation surrounding them.
It’s no secret that Chris Wilder is keen to add to his squad in the coming days and weeks, and a number of names have been linked to Bramall Lane accordingly.
Of course, one of the more prevalent rumours in recent weeks has seen the Blades touted as potential suitors for Jesse Lingard, but according to Eurosport, he isn’t the only Manchester United player they are interested in. Left-back Brandon Williams is also mentioned as a loan target, although the report does suggest that Southampton lead the race for his services this month.
