Sheffield United forward Daniel Jebbison could be heading for the Bramall Lane exit door on a temporary basis, Slavisa Jokanovic has revealed.
Jebbison burst onto the scene for the Blades, as he scored on his debut against Everton in a 1-0 win over the Toffees towards the end of the 2020/21 season.
It was a frustrating league campaign for Sheffield United, as they were relegated from the Premier League after a disappointing campaign in the top-flight.
Jebbison made four appearances in all competitions last term for the Blades, and is likely to be behind a number of other options Jokanovic has at his disposal this season.
Speaking in an interview after Jebbison featured in their 1-0 win over Carlisle United in the First Round of the EFL Cup (quotes sourced from The Star), Blades boss Slavisa Jokanovic revealed that Jebbison could head out on loan for the 2021/22 campaign.
“When one guy is out [Mousset], it’s a chance for all the players and Jebbo is one of the important products from our academy. We believe he has to be on the field, which is the only reason we’re thinking about a situation of loaning him.”
A loan move elsewhere is likely to be the ideal option for all parties involved here. Jebbison impressed in his breakthrough season last term, but it’s understandable that he might not feature much this season, as Jokanovic has more experienced options to call on in the Championship.
The likes of Lys Mousset, Oliver McBurnie, Rhian Brewster, Billy Sharp and David McGoldrick are all likely to be ahead of Jebbison in the pecking order at Bramall Lane this term, and a loan move elsewhere could provide him with the ideal opportunity to further his development in senior football.
BBC Sport’s Garth Crooks labelled Jebbison as an ‘interesting’ talent as he named him in his Team of the Week back in May 2021, so it will be beneficial for the Blades to see that talent develop week in week out.
