Sheffield United star could depart as new defender lined up

Sheffield United are savouring a respite from the intense Premier League relegation struggle this week. The Blades found relief in Burnley and Luton Town playing to a draw on Friday evening, maintaining both teams within reach. Chris Wilder’s squad aims to capitalise on this opportunity in their upcoming match against West Ham United next Sunday.

With the transfer window now open, Chris Wilder, having decided to terminate Luke Thomas’ loan on Friday night, is eager to bolster his squad before United’s upcoming game.

According to Alan Nixon, Sheffield United are expressing interest in acquiring Bournemouth defender Chris Mepham this month. With the Blades currently having the leakiest defence in the top division, addressing this issue should be considered a priority for Wilder as he looks ahead.

Rumours have circulated about a potential goalkeeper transfer, and the addition of Mepham could offer valuable experience and depth in the central defensive position. Despite being a Wales international, Mepham has only made five league appearances for Bournemouth this season, sparking speculation of a move away in search of more playing time. Leeds United are reportedly one of the teams monitoring his situation closely.

To add, the renowned transfer journalist has also claimed Anel Ahmedhodzic could be sold this window if the right offer comes in.
