Blades press on with Ramsdale pursuit

Chris Wilder is focusing on who will be in goal next season, with Sheffield United keen to sign Aaron Ramsdale from AFC Bournemouth, despite Jason Tindall’s claim that there will be no exodus of talent at the Vitality Stadium.

That could be the reason why Marco Bizot is being linked to the Blades. He plays in Holland for AZ Alkmaar where he had an outstanding last season keeping 24 clean sheets in 38 games.

Sky Sports are report that Atletico Madrid, Sevilla, Valencia, United, Crystal Palace and Fulham are all interested, so it might come down to who has the biggest chequebook.

After the success of this season back in the top flight, the Blades may have the resources to compete. Even allowing for a rebate back to TV companies to cover issues arising around Covid, they are estimated to have finished the season with a cool £132.6million from the premier league. Just to put that in context, they received just £7million in the season they came up from the Championship in 2018/19.
