Hull City and Ipswich Town are set to battle it out for Sheffield United keeper George Long who could be set to leave Bramall Lane, according to HITC.
The 24-year-old came through the Blades academy and has played over 100 games for his local side.
However, since Chris Wilder came to the club he has found game time hard to come by and spent last season on loan at AFC Wimbledon in League One.
And, with Dean Henderson joining Sheffield United on loan from Manchester United and Simon Moore also at the club, Long could have to leave again to play.
However, there is interest in the player, with HITC reporting that Ipswich and Hull are both looking at the stopper.
The Tigers are without a keeper after Allan McGregor moved back to Rangers and Long is a player Nigel Adkins knows him well having worked with the keeper at Bramall Lane.
Meanwhile, the Tractor Boys number one Bartosz Bialkowski is attracting interest from fellow Championship sides and Paul Hurst may see long as a potential replacement.
It seems inevitable that Long will leave Sheffield United permanently this summer and it’s probably the best move for all parties.
He is a good keeper but Wilder has several good options ahead of him so he won’t be needed.
For the player, the chance to play regularly in the Championship must appeal and it’s an opportunity for Long to kick-on and prove himself at this level.
