Billy Sharp to return to the Championship?

Despite being one of the most esteemed goal scorers in EFL history, Billy Sharp has not been retained by LA Galaxy for the upcoming MLS season. Even though he was released, he still showcased his sharp goal-scoring instincts across the pond scoring six goals in eight starts and 12 total appearances [SofaScore].

Expressing eagerness to return to the pitch, it’s plausible that offers will come his way. While a return to the Premier League with Sheffield United seems improbable, another opportunity in the EFL is a viable prospect, particularly for a team like Rotherham United.

Sharp, originally part of the The Millers youth academy as a boy, could offer Rotherham a vital presence at the top of the pitch as they attempt to maintain Championship status for another season.

Rotherham United are four points from safety as of writing. They have one of the worst attacks in the division, scoring 15 goals in 16 games, which is the fourth-lowest total.

Perhaps a move to 21st-place Huddersfield Town intrigues the experienced forward.

In his illustrious career, Sharp has netted an impressive total of 130 goals in 399 Championship games, adding 48 assists to his name, according to Transfermarkt, and the former Blades captain could end up adding to his tally if a move does happen.
