Sharp Saga Nearing an End?

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.

oh god i hope he goes!! £1.2 could fetch us nosworthy, a right back, and some wages for a couple of free signings for cover defence....my offer to carry him there from last summer still stands! Is it harsh of me but i really dont want to see him play for us again?! do people remember the days of him and hendo togehter up front????the least mobile forward line since alan cork played up front!

Spot on, Gleadless. Who do players and agents think they are kidding with all that " Billy is a Blade, wants to stay and have one more go at playing for his boyhood club, blah, blah" rubbish. Reality is that he doesnt want to be in a team where he might have to do a bit of work, run a few channels and be criticised by the fans. He didnt want to move house, and was prepaired to sit on the bench until he could agree terms for a free in January to go to Donny at the end of the season. Those are the facts, but he and his agent think we thick fans will swallow the garbage they pump out to us. He's god at little Donny, good luck to him, but good riddance and I'm delighted to get a decent fee for him and use it to bring in Nosworthy and possibly another player. And although I cant personally offer to drive him to The Keepmoat from here, Gleadless, I can arrange to get him a lift if you cant!

Cynics rule OK Glouc !! Frankly bored with Billy saga and time to move on (will contribute to taxi Glouc and Gleadless)- hopefully with £1m+ to spend on midfield and especially defence (we had a surplus of forwards without Sharpy) this will prove a good deal

Didnt Lauren DeJaffo have a metal plate in his back, i seem to remember? I was right behind that goal at Swillsboro when he scored, Karl Asaba got the other one. That was the day that Paul Walker described the scene as "The Leppings Lane Explodes" Happy Days!

......and whats all this about Billys "prolific" goal scoring? 15 in 35 was it? That makes Cress & Hendo prolific scorers as well doesnt it, 12 in 28 league starts for both of them, and Cress got a couple in the cup as well, so 14 in 30 makes him SUPER prolific!

OK BFL, didnt take the wrong way. Simon Walton - I did a brief cameo of him higher up in the article, there is quite a lot to him which I will do in much greater detail if he does sign. Interesting player with a very trophy missus you might like to take a look at, Nicola Tarpenden!
