Sheffield United could be set to make a move to bring Bournemouth stopper, Aaron Ramsdale, back to the club, according to a report from The Sun today.
The Blades are in the hunt for a new number one. This comes despite the capture of Wes Foderingham. Interest in a new stopper comes amid continued confusion over the future of current goalkeeper, Dean Henderson.
Manchester United are still to make their mind up over the England man. Indeed, it is well-known that Henderson does not want to go back to play second-fiddle to David De Gea, leaving the door open for a third spell with the Blades.
But, it appears Chris Wilder is already making contingency plans with news emerging about Ramsdale.
The Blades boss only sold the 22-year-old to the Cherries in 2017. Wilder used the funds raised from the sale of the stopper to improve the squad as United cemented their place in the Championship.
However, with Bournemouth potentially on their way down, it appears Ramsdale’s journey with the Blades might not be over after all.
A good signing although the fee would be interesting…
Ramsdale has been one of the brighter lights for Bournemouth this season despite them sitting near the bottom.
A number of fine displays have led to plenty of praise and it appears he has developed himself into a Premier League quality number one in a pretty short time frame.
However, The Express claimed last week that the Cherries could demand around £22m for Ramsdale. That fee would surely prove too much for the Blades anyway.
Wilder only said last week he doesn’t expect big or expensive changes this summer. If Bournemouth want that much, then we can probably move Ramsdale to the bottom of the list for now.
