Sheffield United are still on the look out for talent in the Championship, and the latest reports suggest that they will continue to see if they can agree a deal with Nottingham Forest for Matty Cash.
According to Yorkshire Live, the Blades had an offer of around £10 million rejected for the player, but they still remain very interested in the Forest full-back.
They will have to up their offer though, with the Championship outfit wanting nearer £15m for the player. It is unknown if and when the Blades will do this, but they are the only club to have made an offer so there is no rush to make another bid yet.
The 22-year-old has had a good season at Forest at both ends of the pitch as he made 42 appearances in the league and scored three goals whilst supplying five assists. He also made 1.1 key passes per match and averaged 2.6 tackles, 1.4 interceptions and three clearances per game, via WhoScored.
This is something that is crucial for a full-back at the Blades as Chris Wilder favours a formation which uses three centre-backs and two wing-backs so he needs players in the full-back positions like Cash who can not only defend well and break up opposition attacks but also can be a threat at the other end of the pitch.
£15m is a decent amount to have to pay for the player, but he is still very young so has a lot of time left in his career to play at a top level and become an even better player. They may have to bite the bullet and pay extra.
