Sheffield United are still looking into the availability of Nottingham Forest defender Matty Cash and they will likely be happy with the latest update on the player.
According to Football Insider, the Blades have already made a £10m offer that was rejected by the Championship side. However, now that they have failed to get promoted, Cash is very eager to make a move to the Premier League as soon as possible. Fellow Premier League side West Ham are also interested in the right-sided player.
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.
Cash’s desire to move to a Premier League side could well excite Sheffield United fans, as he is astute defensively and in an attacking sense. He could given them greater depth at right-back if he signed and would then compete with George Baldock, who has managed 1.6 tackles per game, as well as scoring two goals and supplying three assists in 2019/20, per WhoScored.
There may have been frustration for the Blades after their first bid was rejected, but now that he seemingly wants to move to the Premier League, the club may be able to acquire him if they go back to Nottingham Forest with an improved offer.
