Equally, Sheffield United are also looking to secure promotion themselves, with the Blades currently occupying the fourth and final play-off spot in England’s second tier.
The Sheffield clubs have not faced each other since the 2018/19 campaign, where two 0-0 games were played out in the league.
Whilst we wait to see if the pair will be starting next season in the same division, we take a look at Transfermarkt to assess both clubs’ market values as things stand…
With Sheffield United’s valuation standing at £90.99 million, they possess the third-highest squad market value in the Championship, with only Fulham and Bournemouth ranking higher.
Interestingly, the Blades possess a squad market value that is at least double than teams ranking in at eighth in the division or lower.

The Blades’ squad valuation on Transfermarkt is over three-and-a-half times Sheffield Wednesday’s figure (£24.48 million).
And whilst much lower than the Blades, Sheffield Wednesday’s valuation ranks in as the highest in League One, with the Owls possessing a squad market value that is almost 50% higher than second, Sunderland.
If the Owls were still in the Championship, they would still have a higher squad valuation than five Championship clubs.
Sander Berge’s £16.2 million valuation stands out as the highest figure within the Sheffield United camp, with this number higher than the total valuation of two clubs in the Championship.

Rhian Brewster and Morgan Gibbs-White see their valuations as half of the Norwegian, although, the latter is currently on loan.
Harlee Dean and Josh Windass both have a Transfermarkt valuation of £1.80 million, although, the former is on loan from Birmingham City.
Sitting just behind the aforementioned duo is Barry Bannan and Callum Paterson, with the pair valued at £1.62 million.
Sheffield United’s recent stint in the Premier League is likely to have played a big part in the club possessing such a high valuation, so if they are to remain in the Championship, it is likely to see this valuation decrease.
Should the Owls secure promotion, then it would be no surprise to see a big increase in the squad value, especially if they opt to bring in Championship experience.
