Sharp Saga Nearing an End?
One of the Championship's most intriguing transfer sagas of the summer could finally be coming to an end, as the Sheffield Star reports that a fee has been agreed with Doncaster Rovers for striker Billy Sharp.
The striker has been the subject of increased speculation in the close-season, and after a move to Burnley broke down, it appears the Keepmoat could be his destination.
However, the Blades had previously agreed a fee with Brian Laws' side, only for the deal to break down at the contract negotiation stage, so there's nothing set in stone just yet, although an impressive loan spell last season makes it more likely that Sharp could join Sean O'Driscoll's men.
The fee is thought to be somewhere in the region of £1.2million, smashing Doncaster's previous transfer record.
