A loan move for their former striker would provide Sheffield United with further depth

Published

Injuries can be devastating, and long term lay offs can unfortunately have a significant effect on a player’s future at a club.

One man who may have felt the full force of this is Derby County striker Nick Blackman, who manager Gary Rowett has admitted could be set for a loan move away from the club having fallen down the pecking order at Pride Park.

Blackman will surely find himself peppered with offers, and one club that should make a move for the player are Sheffield United.

The 27-year-old enjoyed a wonderful one year spell with the Blades earlier in his career, smashing 11 goals in 28 appearances before moving on to Reading the following season.

Chris Wilder’s men got their season off to the perfect start with victory over Brentford on Saturday, but the former Northampton boss will be keen to add further options to his squad before the transfer window closes next month.

Blackman would provide an excellent alternative option to the skill sets of Billy Sharp and Leon Clarke, and the big powerful forward could easily settle at Bramall Lane once more.

Sheffield United should avoid the drop this season and secure a mid table finish, and the acquisition of Blackman would go a long way in helping the Blades achieve their goals.

Blackman still has a future at Derby, and a solid year in south Yorkshire could be enough to convince Rowett that the forward is ready to rejoin his squad.

This move would work perfectly for all involved, and Wilder should explore a potential deal for Blackman.

Would you like to see Blackman back at your club, Blades fans?
