Sheffield United will be gutted with yesterday’s result against Leeds United as they were on the receiving end of an unfortunate defeat at Bramall Lane.
The Blades currently find themselves in a promising position to secure a play-off place and possibly even challenge for an automatic promotion place, with consistency being key from here on in. And, it looks as if Chris Wilder is looking at potential additions to help his side’s promotion push, as according to Sun Sport, Sheffield United are weighing up a move for Jermain Defoe.
Sheffield United are weighing up a move for Jermain Defoe to help boost their promotion hopes.
Chris Wilder wants a No9 in the January transfer window after getting within sight of the Premier League, which has seen the Blades turn their attention towards the Bournemouth striker.
The experienced forward is on the Blades’ radar for a six-month loan, but the Cherries would have to help out with his wages to loan him to the Championship.
Jermain Defoe’s experience could prove to be vital to Sheffield United’s promotion push if they managed to get a deal over the line, with Billy Sharp already putting in big performances in the side as one of the more experienced members in the squad at this moment in time.
The Blades could do with bringing in another forward that has the ability to finish chances with ease, which is exactly what Jermain Defoe has done throughout his footballing career.
So, if Wilder manages to secure his services on loan in January then supporters would surely look on in awe, as he could be a valuable asset for a Championship side.
