Championship

Sheffield United linked with Josh Hawkes

Sheffield United linked with Josh Hawkes

Sheffield United managed to secure three vital points against West Bromwich Albion last time out, which helped them keep the pressure on the likes of Leeds United and Norwich City. 

The Blades will travel to Hillsborough to face rivals Sheffield Wednesday in the Steel City derby in their next Championship fixture, which will be sure to produce a few fireworks.

However, it appears as if Chris Wilder has his sights set on a possible swoop, as according to Teamtalk, Sheffield United are taking a keen interest in Hartlepool’s Josh Hawkes.

Hawkes has been in fine form in recent times as he’s bagged three goals in his last five games, which has caught the attention of a number of clubs, including Burnley, Huddersfield, Hull City and Barnsley.

Also, Newcastle, Sunderland and Middlesbrough all have a long-standing interest in the youngster, so it won’t be easy for the Blades to secure his services with a number of Premier League sides in the race.

THE VERDICT:

The midfielder already has five goals to his name from midfield and has his whole career ahead of him, so he could go on to become a star in the future.

Indeed, the Blades managed to get the very best out of David Brooks prior to his move to Bournemouth, so perhaps they can turn Hawkes into another exciting talent.
