Sheffield United and Millwall set for January battle for pacey striker



Championship duo Sheffield United and Millwall could be set to go head to head in the race to sign Fleetwood Town striker Devante Cole, according to Alan Nixon.

The speedy forward, who was a target for the Blades in the summer before a move fell through, has been in decent form once again this season and now both the Lions and Blades could be set to offer their services to Cole in January, should Fleetwood choose to sell.

The 22-year-old has bagged eight times this season already to further enhance his reputation as one of the top strikers outside the top two divisions, and he could well be keen to test himself in the Championship should either club make a solid bid for him.

Cole was a product of the Manchester City academy, and is the son of former England and Man United legend Andy Cole. Devante made his name with Bradford, where his form earned him the move to seaside club Fleetwood, where he has continued to impress.

His speed, finishing ability, and movement make him an ideal candidate to progress and succeed in the Championship, while at 22, he has plenty of time to develop and could well prove a shrewd buy for both United or Millwall come January.
