Everton could be about to see one of their exciting graduates leave the club on loan in the January transfer window.
It is understood that the Blades are close to agreeing to terms with the winger with Everton thought to have given him the green light to make the move.
Dowell has not featured in Marco Silva’s first-team plans this season and is unlikely to have a prominent role in the near future.
The Portuguese manager has been able to get the Toffees playing some great football at times this season, as the Premier League side look to try and achieve a place within European football for next season.
A loan move for Dowell to Sheffield United could be exactly what he needs to get his football back on track.
The England Under-21 international was impressive during his loan spell with Nottingham Forest last season and a move to the Blades could help him to develop even further.
Everton will be keen to see how well he does at Bramall Lane and will want to see Dowell receive regular game-time in Chris Wilder’s side.
