Sheffield United transfer news: Blades have ‘no plans’ to sign a goalkeeper, Chelsea star set for new loan after Norwich City spell

The new EFL Championship season is less than a fortnight away from kicking off as Paul Heckingbottom continues to make moves in the summer market.

The summer transfer window continues to prove a challenging once for clubs across the second tier of English football as they look to improve their squads while also retaining their star players.

Sheffield United boss Paul Heckingbottom has ‘no plans’ to sign a goalkeeper in this window despite an injury to one of his current stoppers at Bramall Lane while a former Rotherham United defender looks likely to make a move to League Two side Swindon Town.

Meanwhile, QPR and Blackburn Rovers ‘have their sights set’ on a Brighton & Hove Albion midfielder who spent the second half of last season on loan at Birmingham City and Millwall are ‘close’ to securing the signing of a Leeds United midfielder on loan.

Burnley are said to be ‘closing in’ on the signing of a £4 million goalkeeper from manager Vincent Kompany’s former club but the Clarets are also braced for another move for their current star winger as Fulham join Everton and Newcastle United in trying to land the attacker.

Elsewhere, Middlesbrough are ‘plotting’ a move for a Brentford striker who spent last season on loan at Hull City and Blackpool are ‘in talks’ to beat League One side Portsmouth to the signings of an Accrington Stanley forward.

Finally, a former Norwich City loanee is set for another season away from Chelsea after leaving their summer training camp this week.
