Sheffield United make Max Kilman approach

Sheffield United have made a move in a bid to bring Max Kilman to Bramall Lane this summer.

What’s the talk?

That’s according to a report by Football League World, who claimed that Slavisa Jokanovic’s side, along with fellow Championship club Barnsley, have made an approach to Wolverhampton Wanderers regarding a deal for the centre-back.

However, the report added that Bruno Lage’s side have rejected both clubs’ advances for the 24-year-old, as Wolves view the defender as a part of their first team plans for the upcoming Premier League campaign.

Finally, it is claimed that both clubs will be keeping a very close eye on the situation of Kilman over the coming weeks, with the hope that his circumstances at Molineux change.

Would Kilman be a good signing?

Jokanovic surely gutted

With Jokanovic being rather short of options in the centre of defence ahead of next season – Jack O’Connell looks set to remain sidelined for a further six to 10 months following an injury setback, while Kean Bryan’s future is still very much up in the air – that the Blades appear to have been rather bluntly rejected in their approach for Kilman is sure to have left Jokanovic gutted.

Indeed, over his 18 Premier League appearances for Wolves last season, the £4.05m-rated man helped his side to keep five clean sheets, along with averaging 1.1 interceptions, 1.2 tackles and 2.2 clearances and winning 2.9 duels per game.

These metrics saw the man Conor Coady dubbed an “outstanding” player earn a seasonal SofaScore match rating of 6.87, ranking him as Nuno Espirito Santo’s 11th best performer in the top flight.

As such, it is rather unsurprising that Wolves are unwilling to sanction the sale of the £14,000-per-week centre-back this summer, but the fact that a deal for Kilman appears to be unattainable for Sheffield United will nevertheless have frustrated Jokanovic, as the defender very much seems as if he is the type of player the Serbian would love to add to his squad given his quality and position.

Furthermore, the 52-year-old is also starting to run out of time in the summer transfer market, with the new Championship season edging closer with each passing day – something which could lead to a nervy last few weeks of the window for everyone involved with the Blades.
