Sharp Ready To Rip Up Turf Moor

Sharp Ready To Rip Up Turf Moor

Sheffield United have reportedly accepted a seven figure sum from Burnley for striker Billy Sharp.

The striker, who enjoyed a lengthy loan spell at Doncaster Rovers last season, and was subject of a £750,000 bid last month, but with a summer of rebuilding supposedly ahead, it appears the bid by Brian Laws' team was too good to refuse.

Burnley, appear to be preparing for life after Steven Fletcher, and also captured the signing of Wolves' Chris Iwelumo yesterday.

Blades boss Kevin Blackwell had stated that the Sheffield-born striker would be in his plans next year, but after 'the club' declared an interest in Daniel Bogdanovic, and are within days of completing the deal, it appears Sharp is surplus to requirements.

How many days are we from this deal with the Maltese publicity signing? Seems like we have been days away for a couple of weeks now? Sharp was great at first when the fans believed a genuine fan would make it but sadly bot to be! If we get good money and offload hendo then get a proven striker to play with ward or creswell we could be ok!

Rather have Bogdanovic than Sharp but surely we can invest this money somewhere else.

Never been a Sharp fan, but would have liked to see what his confidence would have been like after the spell up the road. The Boggy thing must be all about sponsors funding.

good deal for the club if they get 7 figures...the way we play sharp would never have looked good in the team, so to get £1m + they done ok for a kid entering last year of a deal..i dont doubt he'll score a lot for them, especially as they will likley play football but as it stands weve hendo (likley to be replaced by bogdanovic) cresswell, evans and ward...burnley could be quite a good team next year inspite of laws

well hes in last year of contract and united have a tendancy to get rid in last years, he's been linked with WBA (never going to happen), qpr among teams and we're signing a tall target man in bogdanovic and are looking to extend cresswells deal....do we really need three tall forwards?? cant see the board having three forwards then evans and sharp / ward can you?

Visit Malta must be coming up short on Boggys wages or he would be ours by now.
