Sheffield United signed Gustavo Hamer for £15 million in the summer transfer window, he came to the Blades after excelling for Coventry City. Now could the Blades be willing to steal another outstanding midfielder from the Sky Blues?
Much like Hamer, Callum O’Hare has already proven his outstanding qualities in the Championship. With his contract set to expire at the end of the season, Sheffield United could step up and poach the attacking midfielder.
There is evident apprehension among Coventry supporters that the 25-year-old might leave as a free agent at the end of the season, per Coventry Telegraph. Therefore, it is reasonable to assume that the club is making every effort to prevent this scenario. Like Gustavo Hamer and Viktor Gyokeres before him, he stands as one of their significant assets, both on and off the pitch.
With a full contract in place, his value would be estimated at a minimum of £10 million. But if he is unwilling to sign a new deal, perhaps teams will come sniffing seen as though he will be massively discounted.
Certain fans have speculated whether the club’s cautious approach is influenced by his recent injury history. However, it’s evident that since his return to full fitness, he has demonstrated that he is back to the level he enjoyed before the long-term layoff. The 25-year-old has scored three times and claimed an assist in 13 Championship appearances so far.
We all know O’Hare has previously played with Hamer at Coventry, but did you know he also came through the Aston Villa academy alongside Cameron Archer during Dean Smith’s tenure.
