Sheffield United set to add Premier League forward in temporary deal

Sheffield United are on the verge of finally securing a deal for Brighton & Hove Albion forward Reda Khadra, Football Insider have reported.

The Blades are said to have agreed a deal with the Seagulls for the services of the 21-year-old German, who spent last season on loan at their Championship rivals Blackburn Rovers.

Despite being a natural winger, Khadra played through the middle as an attacking midfielder for a portion of the 2021-22 campaign, and that is likely to be where he features in Paul Heckingbottom’s system.

Quiz: Can you remember the score the last time Sheffield United played at these 26 stadiums?

What scoreline did Sheffield United record the last time they played a competitive game at Bramall Lane?

It wasn’t Rovers who United have fended off to secure Khadra’s signature though, with Sunderland believed to be the other interested party.

Per a report from Alan Nixon, the Yorkshire outfit wanted to bring Khadra to Bramall Lane on a permanent basis, but they have had to settle on a season-long loan deal for the diminutive attacker.

There was a hold-up in proceedings due to Brighton wanting Khadra to commit to a new contract before heading out on loan, and now that has happened he is all set to complete a move to United, with a medical taking place on Monday.

The Verdict

Even though he’s naturally a wide player, Khadra adapted himself last season to play through the middle, and that is where United need bodies.

Morgan Gibbs-White heading back to Wolves has left Heckingbottom with a vacancy in the number 10 role, whilst he’s also short on striking options as well.

These are two positions that Khadra is more-than capable of playing in, and he’s already shown he can cope with the physicality of the Championship whilst featuring for Blackburn.

The German is a player that should get fans off their seats if it all works out, and a deal is expected to be concluded imminently.
