There are two notable youngsters currently on trial at Sheffield United.

Leeds United midfielder Connor Leak-Blunt played in the Under-23s game against Wigan Athletic on Monday night – as reported by HITC.

Leak-Blunt only signed a new three-year contract at Elland Road in July, but it is still unknown what future he has with Leeds.

The teenager also came off the substitutes’ bench for the Blades Under-23s during their 1-0 victory over Barnsley last week.

Meanwhile, the Sheffield Star reports that Emil Bohinen is also on trial at Bramall Lane at the moment. The 20-year-old is the son of former Blackburn Rovers, Derby County and Nottingham Forest midfielder Lars.

Bohinen plays in a similar position to his father and has already broken through into the Stabaek first team in his native Norway. To date he has played 49 times for them.

However, although on trial with United, it seems Bohinen did not take part in the game against Wigan.

The only other triallist currently with the Blades, it seems, is Kamari Grant. The defender also played against the Tykes – as confirmed by their official match report from the game.

There have been other relatively high profile names on trial with the South Yorkshire club across the season, though.

Only last month it was confirmed that Everton striker Kieran Phillips was testing himself with United. Phillips actually scored during an Under-23s match against Bolton Wanderers.

The Blades have some strong connections with the Toffees and particularly their development squad because David Unsworth is the manager. Unsworth is a former player and coach at Bramall Lane.

Prior to that Callum Gribbin was given a one-year deal by the Blades following a successful trial. Highly rated at Manchester United, it didn’t quite work out for Gribbin at Old Trafford and he was released this summer.
