Sheffield United's £6m transfer target tipped to join 'massive club' this summer

There's just a few weeks to go until the summer transfer window opens, and Sheffield United will need to get their recruitment spot on if they're to mount a serious challenge for automatic promotion back to the Premier League next season.

One name who continues to be linked with a move to Bramall Lane is Peterborough United striker Jonson Clarke-Harris, whose lethal finishing for the Posh this season has seen his side secure promotion from League One.

Having netted a impressive 31 goals in 45 matches, interest in the 26-year-old is rising, and both Rangers and West Brom have also been linked with the player.

Ex-Blades goalkeeper Paddy Kenny has tipped the striker to snub Rangers (as well as Sheffield United presumably) and opt to join West Brom instead. He claimed: “He’d definitely go to West Brom if they could somehow stay up.

“Even if they go down and they come in for him, it’s a tough one to turn down. There’s a good chance West Brom will fight for promotion next season again. They always seem to be going up and down like a yo-yo club over the past 15 years.”

Kenny continued: “They aren’t going to get out of the relegation scrap but even if they do go down, it’s a massive club. I’d go to West Brom over Rangers if they both offer. West Brom are going to be playing in a more competitive league.

“Yes, Rangers are going to be playing in the Champions League but there’s a good chance they’ll go out quite early. If you go to West Brom, you could be a Premier League player within 12 months.”
