Championship club set to challenge Sheffield United for Premier League striker

Sheffield United are facing competition from Hull City for the signature of out-of-favour Bournemouth striker Kieffer Moore. The Tiger’s new boss Tim Walter has remained tight-lipped on the transfer front, nevertheless, he has described the Welsh international as a “good player”.

Walter, speaking to BBC Humberside, had this to say about the 31-year-old: “A good player, huh, isn’t he? I know the player, but I can’t tell you anything about…if it’s not happened right now I can’t tell you anything about it.”

Moore’s impressive performance during his stint at Ipswich Town last term has garnered significant attention. Last season was a rollercoaster of emotions and opportunities for the Welsh international. After making only eight substitute appearances for Bournemouth in the Premier League, scoring once, Moore was loaned out to Ipswich Town in January. This move proved transformative for both the player and the club.

At Ipswich, Moore quickly became a central figure in Kieran McKenna’s squad. Demonstrating his prowess as a goal scorer, Moore made 18 appearances, starting 14 of those games, and netted seven crucial goals. His contributions were instrumental in Ipswich Town’s successful campaign, culminating in automatic promotion to the Premier League.

Sheffield United need to sort out forward depth

Sheffield United are still currently in negotiations with Oli McBurnie over a new contract after he officially became a free agent earlier this month. The club have also seen promising striker Daniel Jebbison leave for AFC Bournemouth, so as things stand Rhian Brewster and Will Osula are the only recognised strikers in the senior squad.
