Sheffield United boss Chris Wilder could turn to Hibernian striker, Kevin Nisbet, to try and solve his side’s goalscoring problems.

Another blank last night means it’s now no wins from 16 and a league worse eight goals scored for United so far this term.

Wilder once again went with a three against Burnley with David McGoldrick, Rhian Brewster, and Lys Mousset leading the line. However, there was little in the way of clear chances and the Clarets simply ground out a simple enough 1-0 win.

And now, according to reports from the Scottish Sun, the Blades boss may now look to Nisbet as a potential solution to those issues.

Nisbet has scored 12 goals in Scotland this term, bettered only by James Tavernier of Rangers. He could, then, prove a shrewd addition and at just 23, has time to improve.

The striker only moved to Hibs in the summer but has impressed massively north of the border, with United not the only ones to be chasing his signature, according to the same report.

A Championship signing or a last ditch gamble?

Let’s be completely honest, it can’t get much worse can it so if we can pick Nisbet up for a small-ish fee and he can well, then it might be worth the risk.

Failing that, he might do ok in the Championship and is another player who fits the bill as a younger up and coming talent within the ranks.

Although Wilder has said he will look to make just two loan signings in January, the club could be tempted to back the boss with a bit more cash in the hope of the most dramatic of turnarounds.
