Sheffield United look to build a setup to ensure that the club has a successful future, and a recent report suggests that they will be looking at a young player from the Scottish Premiership.
According to Football Insider, Glasgow Rangers midfielder Ciaran Dickson has been given the green light by the club to head to Sheffield United for a trial, as the 18 year-old is surplus to requirements at the Glasgow giants. The Blades will then decide whether to offer him a contract at Bramall Lane based on his performances during the trial.
The youngster seems to have some promise as he has made 10 appearances for Scotland at various underage levels, per Transfermarkt. He has also featured five times for the ‘Gers in the UEFA Youth League, so he has some very beneficial experience and pedigree for such a young age.
It is a good idea for Sheffield United to take Dickson on trial first before committing to a contract as they will be able to judge whether he has what it takes to become a Premier League player.
It is also refreshing to see that the Blades are looking towards the future as it hints that they have a good structure in place, while the 18-year-old ‘Gers talent looks a decent prospect based on his Scotland underage caps and UEFA Youth League experience.
Blades fans, are you glad to see the club casting a wide net for young talents such as Dickson? Comment below with your views!
