Here is a look at the news regarding both Sheffield clubs today....

Sheffield United want to keep key players

Heckingbottom has made it clear that he doesn’t want to sell any players.

He wants to keep his best assets at Bramall Lane ahead of the new season.

The ex-Barnsley boss has told The Star:

“No players sold, that’s my view. My job is to protect the team. It’s not my money, I get that. But within the organisation, I view my role as being to protect the team and that means having the best squad and the best players.”

The youngster has previously played in the academy at Manchester City.

Yorkshire Live have reported that he is now ‘in talks’ over a switch to Hillsborough.

Defender could leave

David Agbontohoma could leave the Owls on loan.

The young defender played twice last term and the club are weighing up what to do with him.

Boss Darren Moore has said, as per Yorkshire Live:

“We’ll look at him in terms of whether a loan would give him some frontline football where he could get half a season on loan, maybe get 20 or so games in, and that will put some power in him, help his understanding and help him grow.”
