Sheffield United have been the Championship’s surprise package this season. After promotion from League One, the Blades won 12 from 17 which saw them in the automatic promotion spots and neck to neck with Wolves. However, one win in nine since then has seen them slip to seventh. So, which signings should the Blades make to fight for that double promotion?
- Jan Kirchhoff
Kirchhoff, a free agent who has plenty of Premier League experience with Sunderland, known for his amazing passing and tackling, and even won the PFA Fans’ Player of the Month. He would cost nothing for Chris Wilder, and would also not only help fight to get to the Premier League, but would also be a massive boost in staying there.
2. Danny Ings
Ings, a well known player for Liverpool who has been out of action for a while with injury and is finding it next to impossible getting into Liverpool’s XI. However, he has proven that he is a goalscorer in the Championship and Premier League, and so would be a massive boost to Sheffield United and would give competition, or even a partnership, with Billy Sharp or Leon Clarke.
3. Jack Colback
The Newcastle United man is out of favour with Rafa Benitez and is barely getting any game time, and would not cost a lot. But his experience, with Newcastle United and Sunderland in both divisions, and still plenty of years left in him at just 28, would be pivotal in guiding the Blades to Premier League promotion and Premier League survival.
