Sheffield United might not be quite done in the transfer market, with Andre Ayew now being linked with a move to the club.
Despite landing ten players over the course of the transfer window, United remain a tad light up front.
And according to a report from TeamTalk, Ghana striker Ayew is being considered as an option.
Sheffield United consider signing Andre Ayew on free transfer
According to TeamTalk, United are mulling over whether to offer Ayew a contract.
Ayew, 33, is free to move anywhere he wants after leaving Nottingham Forest at the end of the season.

The experienced forward has moved around a fair bit in recent years. That included a spell in Qatar under current Barcelona manager Xavi, who praised Ayew as a ‘very good player’ when he signed him.
“We didn’t change many players. We signed Andre Ayew; he’s a very good player, professional and talented,” Xavi said at the time.
Ayew’s brother, Jordan, currently plays in the Premier League with Crystal Palace and actually played a key role in helping down United on the opening day of the season.
United manager Paul Heckingbottom had previously said he’d done in terms of using the free market.
However, Ayew could be a smart short-term option, especially if Rhian Brewster is still nowhere near a return.

It’s easy to pick out certain free agents and say they’d do a job for a team but for Sheffield United, these have to be the right player.
Ayew certainly has plenty of experience in the tank and at 33, probably isn’t quite done yet.
The one question mark really would be why is he still available going into September. Are there fitness concerns? Maybe issues over wages? Who knows.
However, if Heckingbottom thinks it’s a good deal then it’s one we’ll back. The forward department is light right now and Ayew would definitely bring something to the table.
