Sheffield United are not quite facing a frantic deadline day but there are certain matters to be taken care, one of which is what the club does with Daniel Jebbison.
Jebbison is currently enjoying a fine loan spell with Burton Albion. Under the guidance of Paul Heckingbottom, the forward has scored nine goals in his 25 games this term. Up until recently, it was expected that Jebbison would be staying put, with the Blades keen to see the youngster keep being given minutes at first-team level.
However, the decision to let Ollie Burke leave, coupled with Lys Mousset closing in on a move to Italy and an injury to Rhian Brewster at the weekend, means the Blades are re-assessing. And according to Andy Giddings, United are indeed set to recall the young striker.
Paul Heckingbottom spoke at the weekend about having a decision to make on Jebbison. But it appears the Blades boss’ hand has almost been forced.
Bad News For Brewster
With United set to bring Jebbison back, it seems that the club are expecting the worse when it comes to Rhian Brewster. The young striker appeared to pull his hamstring again this weekend, and it’s a bitter blow.
Brewster was just starting to perform and looked a real threat early on at Peterborough. However, as one door closes, another opens, and Jebbison might well get his chance.
