Blades Linked With Woolfenden
Saturday, 11th Jan 2020 16:09
Sheffield United are reportedly showing interest in Blues centre-half Luke Woolfenden.
According to the Daily Mail, Blades boss Chris Wilder is looking for another overlapping centre-back in addition to Jack O’Connell and Chris Basham and has put the 21-year-old Town academy product on his short-list.
While the Blues aren’t looking to sell their promising youngsters, manager Paul Lambert has admitted that offers can come in which are impossible to turn down.
Lambert has also repeatedly said that Town would need to sell in order to do any “significant” transfer business.

sorry to see The Wolf go, but Evans has made it clear selling is the only way money will be forthcoming, if the offer is realistic he will be gone.

Surely we don’t have to sell : let’s stay grounded and get out of this Division before we even contemplate sellng !

Nope, if he goes, we would need to spend cash replacing him before strengthening other positions.
Rather sell one of the midfielders where we may already have other options

Piss off scum of the north

Sell him for £50000. Per hour for 5 years.

Do think this is why we are looking at the young Everton c/half?

No, no, and no! Preferably never, and in no circumstances now!
|TimmyH added 17:23 - Jan 11|
Well they're going to be in the Premiership next season and if they want him they can pay over the odds or naff off...whether Evans will think this way is another thing.
|BigAlsMate added 17:23 - Jan 11|
If the price is right Evans will sell him. We are not a "big" club any more, but a League 1 team, get used to it people! And morally, should we stop our youngsters having a crack at a higher standard of football.

He is young and gaining experience in the team. Time is on his, and our, side. He is absolute class.

Selling out strongest centre half with us top 6 would be a crazy move
|BettyBlue added 18:07 - Jan 11|
We have no chance of getting out of this division.
Dud owner, dud manager and left with the dud players.

If we sell the Wolf or Downes, despite the owners recent comments, it’s highly unlikely much of the funds received will be reinvested into the playing squad. In recent years Evans has used funds to subsidise his annual investment - choosing to sell our better players, but replace with much cheaper alternates. It’s one of the reasons we were not even remotely competitive last season.

If a Prem club comes in with a serious offer for any of our players then it will be very difficult for us to resist; unless the Prem club is in danger of relegation!

Would be gutted to see wolfenden leave! Had a cracking game today aswell.
|OwainG1992 added 18:27 - Jan 11|
Hope it's all paper talk. He'd be a great signing for them.
|Trac70 added 18:36 - Jan 11|
I think this is going to go through hence the strong link with the young Everton centre back. Everton will want him to have game time and IF Wolfy goes he'll be guaranteed that. I hope I'm wrong!! Watch this space.

Move on, Sheff U won't spend £15m....
