According to The Sun, Everton and Marseille are keen on signing Sheffield United forward Iliman Ndiaye this summer. The Senegal international scored 15 goals last term to help the Blades finish 2nd in the second tier.

He has previously outlined his desire to move to Marseille in the past. Speaking in an interview with French-based journalist Said Amdaa last year, he said: “I’m an Olympique de Marseille fan. I dream of going back there to become a Marseille legend. I can’t stop thinking about it. And even if it’s not now, if it’s in several years, I will continue to work.”

Contract update regarding centre-back

The same report from The Sun claims Jack Robinson is in line for a new deal. The former Liverpool and QPR man sees his current contract at Bramall Lane expire at the end of the month.

He made the switch to South Yorkshire in 2020 from Nottingham Forest and has since made 85 appearances in all competitions. The centre-back has also chipped in with six goals from the back.

He is currently first-team coach at Preston North End under former Sheffield Wednesday striker Ryan Lowe. However, reporter Alan Nixon has claimed on Patreon that he has emerged on the radar of the Potters.
