For League One and Two clubs it is deadline day and that could involve some Sheffield United players.

As the Sheffield Star reports, both Leon Clarke and Jake Wright remain on the transfer list at Bramall Lane. Manager Chris Wilder admits there is interest in the duo.

“There’s been a little bit of interest in both Leon and Jake,” Wilder said.

“I’m sure those boys want to play football, and get themselves going again.”

With Samir Carruthers and Ben Heneghan having joined Cambridge United and Blackpool recently, Clarke and Wright are now the priority for getting off the books.

As speculated on this site, Doncaster Rovers could be a potential destination for Clarke. Doncaster boss Darren Moore has since admitted there is a chance he could sign the striker.

“Leon Clarke is one of many players out there who is a possibility,” Moore told the Doncaster Free Press.

“Everybody can speculate because all these top clubs have got these players about.

“Leon is out there and he’ll be identified, not just by ourselves but by lots of clubs in terms of interest.”

Apparently Clarke’s wages are proving to be a stumbling block. Like many of the Blades squad, the 34-year-old received a pay rise upon promotion to the Premier League.

As for Wright, HITC Sport claims that the defender is on the verge of a move to Bolton Wanderers. Following their takeover and appointment of Keith Hill as manager, Bolton now need to build a squad capable of competing as quickly as possible.

Wright apparently had a medical with the Trotters on Sunday ahead of his switch. This is despite being previously close to joining Mansfield Town.

Mansfield also completed a medical with Wright on Friday, but then stalled on the deal as they explored alternative options. In the interim, Bolton have seized the initiative to land the 33-year-old themselves.
