Sheffield United transfer news: Blades consider swoop for Scottish talent, Man United plot huge £90m PL raid

Sheffield United may already be relegated, but the rest of this season is far from a write-off.

For one thing, the Blades still have some pride to preserve, although to do that they will need to perform an awful lot better than they did against Tottenham on Sunday evening.

United were beaten 4-0 by a rampant Spurs side, and never really laid a glove on their hosts in north London.

Even taking the issues they have faced this season out of the equation, however, Sheffield United will be hoping to finish this season as strongly as possible to give them a boost heading into their campaign next time, especially with the prospect of a new manager coming in.

Speaking about the need to bring in a new boss, interim manager Paul Heckingbottom said: “There’s things we can look at and talk about,” while also acknowledging that a quick appointment would be “preferable” soon after United’s demotion was confirmed.

“There’s things that need to be in place and worked on so whoever does take over from Chris has the best possible start and can immediately get on with doing the most important parts of their job.

“But they’ll also want to put their own stamp, their own mark if you like, on things; particularly when it comes to the make-up of the squad.”

Next up for the Blades is a meeting with Crystal Palace on Saturday.
