Sheffield United have accepted a bid from Hull City for Regan Slater, but a move away hangs in the balance due to the appointment of Slavisa Jokanovic.
According to Hull Live, City made a bid for Slater at the start of the summer, after an impressive loan spell at the KCOM Stadium in 2020/21.
United accepted the Tigers’ bid and personal terms are said to have been discussed, but a move is on hold due to the recent appointment of Jokanovic.
20 facts about Sheffield United’s top five most expensive signings – Are they true or false?
Jokanovic is yet to speak to Slater regarding his future at Bramall Lane, so it is unlikely that Hull will learn their fate until the midfielder holds talks with the Serbian.
Slater made 27 appearances in League One as Hull won promotion to the Championship last season, scoring one goal and registering two assists.
The 21-year-old has made only three appearances for the Blades, scoring one goal which came in the EFL Trophy in 2016/17.
Slater’s contract was set to expire at the end of the month, but United previously exercised their option to extend it by a further year.
I personally think that Slater would benefit more from moving to Hull rather than staying at Sheffield United to be honest.
He needs regular game time after an impressive loan spell away last season, especially at his age.
Under Grant McCann, he has a manager who knows how to get the best out of him on and off the pitch, and he could be the right man for him to develop under.
