Sheffield United continue to look for a left-sided central defender and have now made a move for Wolves star, Max Kilman, according to reports.
United manager Slavisa Jokanovic is trying to plug a gap which Chris Wilder also failed to fully sort before his departure.
And Football League World have claimed that the Blades have made an approach for Wolves’ Kilman. Along with Barnsley, they claim United have asked Wolves about the defender, but have been given a stern ‘hands-off’ warning from Molineux.
Kilman is said to be part of the plans for Wolves this season. United’s approach comes on the same day Dion Sanderson – another target – completed a move to Birmingham City.
The Wolves ace made 14 Premier League starts last term. He became a vital cog for then-manager Nuno Santo, as injuries disrupted Wolves’ season.
Fitting the bill
While the report could amount to nothing in the end, Kilman does actually tick a lot of boxes for the Blades.
Left-sided, capable of playing left-back or in a back three, and young enough to not turn his nose up at a season in the Championship, Kilman has a lot going for him.
However, given Wolves’ apparent response here, United might be best served moving on quickly. Ben Davies from Liverpool has been mentioned again. He’d be a more realistic option, given his lack of games.
Jokanovic faces a big week really. The club needs a few fresh faces in the door, especially in key areas. Kilman and Davies are the sort we should be looking at.
But it remains to be seen whether we can actually get these deals over the line.
