Sheffield United have been extremely impressive in recent times but Friday’s result against Aston Villa will haunt them for a long time, as they let a three-goal lead slip.
The Blades still find themselves sitting in a promising position in the race for automatic promotion, but they’ll need to improve defensively if they are to stand any chance of tasting Premier League football.
Interestingly, it appears as if the Blades are looking to strengthen in the right area, as according to the Daily Mail, Sheffield United are interested in signing Rotherham United’s Will Vaulks.
It’s thought that the Blades are one of the clubs keeping an eye on the midfielder, and Cardiff City and an Italian Serie A side were also reportedly set to watch the 25-year-old yesterday.
Vaulks has been one of the standout performers in the Championship this season, with six goals and three assists to his name, so it comes as no surprise that the Blades are looking to bring him to Bramall Lane.
The midfield ace has been the shining light for Rotherham United in the current campaign, and he could definitely bolster the Blades’ midfield as a great passer of the ball who has the ability to find the back of the net regularly.
Chris Wilder very rarely makes a mistake when it comes down to signing players, so supporters will be excited about the prospect of welcoming Vaulks to Bramall Lane.
