Billy Sharp to end playing career in America?

Former Sheffield United captain and legend, Billy Sharp, is reportedly considering an unexpected move to the LA Galaxy in the MLS, Alan Nixon understands.

Despite anticipation of interest from Championship and League One clubs this summer, no offers or agreements have materialised. While Derby County and Rotherham United have shown interest, they have yet to finalise a deal.

The Sun’s Alan Nixon suggests that Sharp might engage in talks with the LA Galaxy, which could potentially lead to a move to the US. The American team is renowned in England due to David Beckham’s transfer back in 2007. But it has since gained popularity in the MLS as it boasts prominent players like Douglas Costa and Javier Hernandez.

Despite limited playtime for Sheffield United last season, Sharp desired to remain with the team, but circumstances led to a change. Now, it appears that Sharp is poised for a fresh start and a satisfying conclusion to his illustrious career.

Throughout his career, Sharp has netted an impressive total of 130 goals in 399 Championship games, with an additional 48 assists to his name. Altogether, he scored 266 goals in 691 games, and tallying 75 assists [Transfermarkt].
