BBC pundit Carlton Palmer believes Wolves defender Conor Coady would consider a move to Sheffield United.
The 30-year-old, who has been capped 10 times by England, is nearing the end of his loan spell at Everton. The Toffees do have an option to sign Coady on a permanent basis for £4.5m but there are doubts whether Sean Dyche wants to keep him after playing him rarely since being appointed manager. The Blades are thought to be keeping tabs on their former player, and Palmer says a return to Bramall Lane is a genuine possibility:
“Sheffield United are monitoring Coady’s situation, and he is believed to be interested in staying up north due to his family. He played previously at Sheffield United on loan, he knows the club, he knows it well, and would maybe be interested in a loan, if not a permanent move, if United could afford the fee and his salary.”
If Coady is not wanted by Everton, and Wolves make him available for transfer once again, then United may have a good chance of securing his signature.
The Blades have a limited transfer budget
Reports suggest that manager Paul Heckingbottom may only have £20m to spend this summer and, while Coady could eat up some of the budget, you would think he would be more than worth the outlay.
The former Liverpool academy graduate has a wealth of experience. In addition to his England caps, he has made 176 appearances in the Premier League over the past five seasons.
