Sign Them Up Chris Wilder – 2 Players Who Could Massively Improve Sheffield United In The Championship

These Two Players Would Massively Improve Sheffield United Next Season

Sheffield United are on their way back to the second tier of England and they are doing it in great style. Should they win their last two games; the Bramall Lane side can reach 100 points for the season which would be a fantastic achievement.

Staying up next year will not be at the forefront of Chris Wilder’s mind. Giving rivals Sheffield Wednesday a good run for their money (assuming they don’t go up to the Premier League via the play-offs) is a realistic proposition, as is a place in the top-6.

Signings which can lift the Blades to that level are very realistic. Not only will players be happy to go to a club of this size, but their record last year in bringing in players who can transform their team has been excellent. Simon Moore, Jake Wright, John Fleck, Mark Duffy and Daniel Lafferty were all signed last summer and have gone on to make big impact for the side.

Should the scouting system work well this summer as well, fans can expect big things. For what it’s worth, the below two players can improve them hugely:

Adam Webster

The Ipswich Town centre-half has been a standout player in the Championship this season. Comfortable across the back line, Webster would be an ideal fit for Chris Wilder’s preferred back 3 formation. At 22-years of age, he is still improving.

While at Portsmouth, Webster represented England at under-17, under-18, and under-19 levels and has the potential. Ipswich have been a Premier League team in the not too distant past, but are not the sort of club who can turn down large bids. A bid of considerable value might be enough to tempt them to a sale.

Stephen Warnock

Should Wigan go down to League One (which looks likely), they will certainly have the need to trim their wage bill.  Warnock, at 35-years of age, has been their best player this season and still has tons of ability.

The former Liverpool man’s dead-ball and passing skills are not to be underestimated and make him a valuable free transfer. Given that he would likely be a wing-back in Chris Wilder’s system, he may not at his age play every single game.

Current incumbent, Danny Lafferty has done well but produces nothing like the attacking threat that Kieron Freeman does on the other side. While Lafferty is learning his trade, having Warnock in there, especially for the big games, could be crucial for the player and for the team in the longer term.
