Reports today claim Billy Sharp could be on his way to Sheffield United with the League One club said to be offering around £500,000, though a fee has yet to be agreed by Leeds United.

The 29-year-old striker grew increasingly frustrated last season as he struggled to hold down a first team place, making many of his appearances from the bench.

Since then, Leeds United have added further competition up front in the form of Chris Wood and Lee Erwin, the former arriving in a deal believed to be costing around £3m with potential add-ons, making him an almost certainty to be starting opening day against Burnley.

With the added competition for a places, it’d be no surprise to see an already frustrated Sharp leave the club and a third spell with Sheffield United seems as likely a destination as any.

There could be potential for a part-exchange deal here with Leeds known to be interested in Blades’ winger Jamie Murphy, however, at the time of writing, there’s been no suggestion that he’s part of the negotiations.
