Sheffield United are targeting the loan acquisition of a right-footed center-back with prior top-flight experience as the transfer window nears its end. To add, manager Chris Wilder has stated that he anticipates none of his starting XI to depart.
The signing of Ivo Grbic as the new first-choice goalkeeper has cast uncertainty over Wes Foderingham’s future, particularly since Foderingham is approaching the end of his contract. However, despite this situation, manager Chris Wilder remains confident that there will be one addition to the squad and no departures from the core group as the transfer window draws to a close at 11pm on Thursday.
Both Mason Holgate and Ben Godfrey, hailing from Yorkshire, have been linked with potential moves, with the latter also attracting interest from Leeds United. But, manager Chris Wilder doesn’t anticipate the rumoured interest from Napoli in defender Anel Ahmedhodzic to materialise into a transfer.
Meanwhile, Wilder has disclosed that Foderingham has requested to be loaned out.
He stated in his latest press conference, “I said let’s see what happens, see who comes to the table and we will discuss everything. I was up front with Wes, always have been, in terms of what we were doing with Ivo.”
Before the transfer window shuts, Sheffield United have an important Premier League fixture against Crystal Palace scheduled for Tuesday, which they need to navigate, and at this stage of the season, they need to be picking up points from these sort of opponents.
