Report: Sheffield United join host of clubs wanting Leicester's Hamza Choudhury

According to The Athletic, Sheffield United have once again expressed an interest in signing Leicester City midfielder, Hamza Choudhury.

Choudhury, 23, is expected to move on this January. A loan deal looks most likely for the England under-21 star. The midfielder has found minutes hard to come by at Leicester this season.

The Foxes have an abundance of midfield talent at their disposal. The likes of Wilfried Ndidi, Youri Tielemans, and James Maddison, all well ahead of Choudhury in the pecking order.

And The Athletic now claims that the Blades, along with the likes of Fulham and Newcastle, are keen on a deal for Choudhury.

Previously a star at international level for the Young Lions. Choudhury would bring much needed steel and Premier League nouse to the Sheffield United midfield.

The Leicester man has already left an impression at Bramall Lane. He was picked out by many Blades fans when Leicester won 2-1 in S2 last season.

Meanwhile, United look set to miss out on Manchester United midfielder, Jesse Lingard. The England man is expected to join West Ham.

Sheffield United want Choudhury – A solid signing in a key position

While most Blades fans will admit a more attacking midfielder would be a priority this January, it’s looking a really tough market to deal in.

Bringing someone like Choudhury into the fold would do the squad no harm whatsoever. Chris Wilder has spoken about bringing players in who can make an instant improvement to the first XI. The Leicester man would certainly do that.

As the clock ticks down, United are bound to be linked with more and more names as Wilder’s search narrows. Once again, we find ourselves up against a lot of teams. However, Choudhury is said to have no preference over where he moves, as long as he gets regular minutes.

That could well play into our hands. Choudhury would walk straight into the midfield.
