Wilder rules out targetting one season wonders
Chris Wilder says Sheffield United’s transfer policy will see them target rising stars rather than one season Premier League wonders.
The Blades have begun planning for the upcoming transfer window following their promotion to the Premier League and Wilder admits that has opened up many new avenues when it comes to strengthening his squad.
A new striker is understood to be top of United’s wishlist with Brentford’s Neal Maupay and Swansea City centre-forward Ollie McBurnie thought to be on the shortlist of contenders.
While Wilder is keeping quiet on specific targets, he has revealed the type of player he will be looking to bring in, claiming journeymen talent from the top flight will not be arriving at Bramall Lane this summer.
‘It’s early days,’ he told the Sheffield Star.
‘There’s a limited amount of players that a lot of clubs will be after.
But being in the Premier League will be appealing to the players we’re looking to bring in.
‘ ‘We want assets, again, who can grow with the club,’ he added.
‘It will be the same approach as over the last three years.
Just with better players.’
