The former child prodigy that could keep Sheffield United up next season in the Championship

Published

on

It’s finally happened at Sheffield United.

Their six year stay in the third tier of English football is over.

Sheffield United have underperformed in every season since their relegation to League One, but this year Chris Wilder’s side have stormed to the title, and secured promotion to the Sky Bet Championship.

The former Northampton boss can rest easy with one game of the season still to go, having wrapped up the title at his former side earlier in the month.

Wilder will already be plotting ahead for next season, and identifying potential targets to keep his side in the league will be his number one priority.

United will enter the division with a decent sized budget, but compared to many of their established Championship rivals, the Blades spending power will be considerably smaller.

The free agent market is something that the boss will definitely explore, and one player whose contract is set to expire this summer could add the perfect attacking flair to the south Yorkshire club.

Cardiff’s Kadeem Harris joined the Bluebirds after becoming Wycombe Wanderers’ youngest ever player – a record taken by Jordon Ibe – but struggled to adapt to life in south Wales.

Loan spells with Brentford and Barnsley followed, and now Harris is finally showing the ability he promised when Cardiff signed the youngster from the Chairboys in 2012.

City have bided their time with the 23-year-old, and their patience is now being rewarded.

Harris has been in good form over the last few months, and is starting to add goals and assists to his game.

Four goals and four assists in 21 starts is not electric, but the winger is beginning to move in the right direction.

With his contract set to expire in June, and a new deal looking unlikely, Wilder should strike for the player.

Harris has exceptional potential, and would be a dangerous addition to the Blades attacking line up.

The Yorkshire side will need goals and creativity if they are to compete in the division next season, and the addition of Harris on a free transfer would be a low risk deal for the club.

If they get Harris firing, they will have an excellent player on their hands with potential of a huge sell on value.
