Rhys Norrington-Davies reportedly wanted by West Brom - time for Blades to play him?

Sheffield United defender Rhys Norrington-Davies is being targeted by West Bromwich Albion, according to Football Insider.

They claim the Baggies are plotting a January move for Norrington-Davies – who is currently on loan at Luton Town.

The West Brom management team are keeping a close eye on the 21-year-old as they look to improve their Premier League fortunes.

Like the Blades, the newly promoted side are yet to win this season and are currently in the relegation zone.

Boss Slaven Bilic wants to use the upcoming January transfer window to sign players to try and improve their form and results.

And it appears Norrington-Davies is on their radar after an impressive start to the new campaign.

As well as helping Luton to 10th in the Championship, the left-back has also started the last two internationals for Wales.

The most recent was a 3-1 win over Finland, which confirmed the country’s promotion to the top tier of the Nations League.

Norrington-Davies is yet to play for United since joining them from Swansea City in 2017. He’s since spent time on loan with Barrow and Rochdale as well.

Although he is yet to make his Blades debut, Norrington-Davies is clearly in the thought process of manager Chris Wilder.

The Wales international has regularly trained with the first team and been used in pre-season friendlies.

Norrington-Davies has progressed even further in his career in the early stages of 2020/21 too.

The youngster now has three caps for his country and has looked comfortable in the second tier of English football.

It’s therefore unsurprising there is interest in Norrington-Davies and United have to be careful they don’t see his head turned.

Especially as his position is an area where they are currently struggling. Norrington-Davies has played as a left wing-back for both the Hatters and Wales this term.

The Blades have already fielded Enda Stevens, Ben Osborn and Max Lowe in the same role this season.

While it would make sense for Norrington-Davies to see out his loan spell at Kenilworth Road this campaign, perhaps offering the Welshman assurance of game time in 2021/22 could put him off a potential switch to West Brom.
