Sheffield United closes in on making triple signing


Sheffield United are close to completing the triple signing of Derby duo Jayden Bogle and Max Lowe and West Brom forward Oliver Burke.

A £15m fee has been agreed in principle for full-backs Bogle and Lowe, two of the brightest prospects to come out of Derby’s academy, with Lowe due to undergo his medical in Sheffield on Sunday.

Derby boss Phillip Cocu left Bogle and Lowe out of his squad for Saturday’s Carabao Cup fixture against Barrow at Pride Park. The Rams won on penalties after the game finished goalless.

West Brom’s Burke, who was signed for £13m as a 19-year-old by Bundesliga side RB Leipzig back in 2016, is also nearing a move to Brammall Lane

Negotiations with West Brom have been ongoing for more than a week, but it now looks like a swap deal – with Callum Robinson heading to The Hawthorns, and Burke heading to join Chris Wilder – is close to being completed.

The talks have focused on the relative value of each player, and whether either side ought to be offering a cash sum, to level up the deal.

Scotland international Burke spent last season on loan with Spanish side Alaves, who play in La Liga. In 31 appearances, he registered one goal and two assists.
