Go elsewhere: Sheffield United fans don’t want Assombalonga

Sheffield United fans on Twitter have given their verdict on the potential signing of Britt Assombalonga from Middlesbrough.

The Congolese striker has been linked to a move to Bramall Lane since the Yorkshire club’s promotion to the Premier League was confirmed, but the fanbase don’t want to see him put on a red and white shirt.

According to a recent report from The Star, the club now value him significantly lower than the £15m Boro paid for him in 2017.

The Blades have been in the market for a new striker, with a multitude of players already linked to the club, including Oliver McBurnie and Neal Maupay.

Assombalonga has been a prolific Championship hitman for years now, but fans of the Steel City outfit aren’t convinced that he would do a good job in the Premier League.

The Yorkshire club’s current strike partnership of Billy Sharp and David McGoldrick has been fantastic over the past 12 months, and fans aren’t happy about the prospect of the 26-year-old taking either of their places.

One fan claimed the attacker is only worth five or six million at most, while another alluded to his inability to maintain full fitness as a legitimate cause for concern.

Here’s what the Bramall Lane faithful have been saying on Twitter…
