Blades Set to Reward Adams' Valiant Effort?
Port Vale boss Micky Adams is the latest name to be linked with the vacant managerial position at Bramall Lane, after leading Port Vale to the automatic places in League 2.
Adams, who took control of the Valiants as a lower midtable side teetering on the brink of relegation with the boardroom in disarray. However, the former Leicester City and Coventry boss turned around the fortunes of the Staffordshire based club and they're now challenging Chesterfield for top spot in the fourth division.
What Adams does possess is a desire for the Blades, as a boyhood United fan he previously went on record as saying they were the only club he would leave Vale for.
Adams' number two, ex Blade Geoff Horsfield said: 'The gaffer's name is going to be touted around because in 18 months we've gone from the bottom of League Two to the top without spending a great deal of money."
'Micky is a professional, and he has also managed in the Premier League and the Championship with Leicester City and Coventry.
His name was always going to be mentioned in connection with this job, especially as he was born in Sheffield and he's a United fan.
But Micky gets on with the job and, as he's so professional, he won't get unsettled.'
