Blades boss Chris Wilder has hinted that there could be a fifth new face through the doors at Bramall Lane this week following the signing of Oliver Burke.

Wilder and United sealed the signing of Burke to make it four signings in two days in what has been an exciting period for the club after what had been a relatively quiet window previously.

But Wilder, speaking after unveiling Burke, appeared to hint at another new face arriving in the coming days.

It’s been an outstanding window with the business we’ve managed to do. The money for Ramsdale and then the two lads from Derby, as well as being delighted to bring in Ethan. Then we’ve got another one lined up, hopefully, in the next few days”, Wilder said.

While rumours are rife as to who the fifth signing might be, it wouldn’t be a surprise to see Wilder simply pull one out of the bag from nowhere.

Both Rhian Brewster from Liverpool and Bayern Munich starlet Leon Dajaku are the two names most heavily linked with the club. 

However, as with the signings of Bogle and Lowe, it could be that Wilder has a surprise up his sleeve.

Whoever it is, it’s likely to be a loan – Our View

While Wilder has been shrewd with his spending and has, once again, been superb with a reduced budget, there is little chance of us splashing the cash again.

The Blades boss hinted earlier last month that Ramsdale’s signing was the big one for the summer, so a loan deal is a move we are expected to make in the coming days.

Rhian Brewster would seem to be the most obvious name to arrive but, as is widely reported, it doesn’t appear that Liverpool has come to a decision on what they do with their young prospect as yet.

Whoever it may be, though, it’s been an exciting week to be a Blades fan and nobody can really have any grumbles.
