Sheffield United beating off competition to sign this promising 21-year-old would massively aid their PL adventure

Sheffield United opinion: Blades in for Kieran Dowell – Good move?

According to an update by Sun journalist Alan Nixon, Premier League’s new boys Sheffield United are interested in signing Kieran Dowell from Everton during this transfer window.

The 21-year-old midfielder plied his trade at Bramall Lane for the second half of the season, when he went on loan away from Goodison Park. He played 16 games for the Blades and helped them finish in the automatic promotion spots.

As per a report from Liverpool Echo, while Chris Wilder’s men are looking to sign him back, whether it be on loan or permanent, newly-relegated Huddersfield Town are set to rival them in this race.

Dowell, who is due to join the England U-21 squad for the Euro 2019 Championships, didn’t get many opportunities at Everton in the first half of the season. Hence, it looks like he would make a move away.

Here’s why Sheffield United should make sure his next destination is back at Bramall Lane:

Dowell made the difference when he arrived 

Upon his arrival at Sheffield United, Kieran Dowell did make a considerable amount of difference in their midfield play. He is a versatile player, who operated as an attacking midfielder, central midfielder and as a wide midfielder in those 16 games.

Therefore, in a way, the 21-year-old was Chris Wilder’s delight, where the manager was able to rotate his positions and got a positive performance every single time.

In terms of the attributes, Dowell is a very steady player, who likes to play short passes, link up with the attackers, takes set-pieces with great accuracy and helps the team out without possession.

He is one of those players from whom one can expect consistent performances over a long period of time. It is something that would be helpful for Sheffield United in their first season back in the big league.

Hence, it makes sense for the Blades to offer another deal to the midfielder, whether it be a loan or permanent one. They could do with the 21-year-old in their squad for the Premier League adventure.
