Six goal midfielder is ideal replacement for multi-million pound departure

Published

on

With the sale of David Brooks to Bournemouth, Sheffield United need to sign an attacking midfielder if they are to improve on last season and enter the promotion fray.

Fortunately, the many millions that the Premier League side paid has provided Chris Wilder with the funds to secure an adequate replacement. He should look at investing in George Honeyman.

The 23-year-old Sunderland midfielder was one of the rare bright spots in an otherwise dark season on Wearside. In his first season as a regular member of the starting eleven, Honeyman provided six goals and two assists from his 42 appearances. His performances were enough to raise the question of whether he should be given the captain’s armband for next season, partially in a bid to encourage him to stay.

Any club attempting to pry him away will have a fight on their hands. Honeyman has been at Sunderland since he was 10 and Jack Ross has made his desire to keep him at the club well known. Yet this should not dissuade Sheffield United from going in for him. He has demonstrated his ability to perform in the Championship and is still improving as a player. If he can be lured to Bramall Lane, he will be a terrific asset to the side for years to come.

The loss of Brooks, an exciting young prospect, was undoubtedly a blow to Wilder’s plans for next season. However, if he can secure Honeyman, it need not be a blow to Sheffield United’s season.
