Sheffield United set to receive seven figure sum for striker

It is being reported that Daniel Jebbison is undergoing a medical at AFC Bournemouth and Sheffield United will be due £1.5 million in compensation, per Mark McAdam. Details of a sell-on clause have not been mentioned but previous deals of this nature have included sell-on percentages.

According to the Rules and Regulations of both the Premier League and the English Football League (EFL), when a club signs an out-of-contract player who is under the age of 24, it must provide compensation to the player’s former club. This requirement ensures that the former club is reimbursed for its investment in the training and development of the young player. This system is designed to promote and reward clubs for their role in nurturing young talent, ensuring that they are compensated for the resources and efforts expended in the player’s formative years.

The 20-year-old made a total of 35 appearances for the Blades scoring three times and serving up one assist. Unfortunately, his development has been hindered over the last 12 months due to a mixture of injuries and a health scare back in last summer’s pre-season.

There is no doubt Jebbison has a bright future, hence why some of the biggest clubs in Europe have shown interest of late. But, he is a long way off realising his potential, thus perhaps Bournemouth will prefer to send the Canadian born forward on loan this coming season.

Sheffield United and Bournemouth to swap strikers?

It was initially reported by transfer insider Darren Witcoop that Sheffield United are keen on signing Welsh international Kieffer Moore. As the final 12 months of the 31-year-old’s contract with Bournemouth approach, the striker’s future appears poised for a new chapter.

With neither Moore nor Bournemouth showing an inclination to extend his deal, the possibility of a transfer is increasingly likely. Moore’s impressive performance during his stint at Ipswich Town last term has not gone unnoticed, particularly by Sheffield United’s manager Chris Wilder and Des Taylor, the acting transfer advisor for the potential new owners of the Blades.

Moore’s statistical achievements speak volumes about his impact on the pitch. According to FBref, he ranked in the 91st percentile for non-penalty goals among Championship forwards, a testament to his finishing prowess. Additionally, he stood out in several other key metrics: 96th percentile for total shots, 79th for shots on target, and 75th for goals per shot. However, his 46th percentile ranking in non-penalty expected goals per shot suggests that Moore often scores from less promising situations, highlighting his ability to convert difficult chances.

A deeper dive into his playing style reveals a preference for direct play. Moore’s statistics further underline his attacking contributions: he ranked in the 83rd percentile for touches in the attacking third, an indicator of his involvement in forward play. More strikingly, he was in the 99th percentile for touches in the opposition penalty area, emphasising his presence. His ability to receive progressive passes was reflected in a 76th percentile ranking, while his dominance in aerial duels was unmatched, as he ranked in the 99th percentile for percentage of aerial duels won.
