Sheffield United had a successful January transfer window this time around as Chris Wilder managed to bring in players who can firmly strengthen his ranks at Bramall Lane.
Gary Madine and Kieran Dowell arrived from the Premier League, while the signing of Scott Hogan from Aston Villa was also seen as a big win for the Blades.
However, news has emerged today that the club could well be looking to make a move in the market again, with Rotherham United midfielder Will Vaulks being targeted by the Blades, along with the likes of Cardiff City.
Vaulks has been in superb form for the Millers over the last few seasons and has been one of the key men in a period which has seen the 25-year-old really make his mark in South Yorkshire.
The midfielder has been an instrumental figure since Paul Warne took the reins at the New York Stadium, and it is little surprise to see interest in Vaulks develop from other clubs up and down the country.
The Blades in particular could be an ideal destination for the impressive Vaulks, and with that, we’ve looked at TWO reasons why his signing makes perfect sense for the Blades…
Perfect age and time to develop
At 25, Vaulks will be coming into what should be his prime in the coming seasons, and a move to a club like United would be ideal.
The midfielder has grown into being one of the key men for the Millers and it would be an easy move for him to make logistically.
He would no doubt improve further too with the quality in the Blades squad, and the move makes all kind of sense really.
Midfield options the Blades seem to lack
Outside of Oli Norwood and John Fleck in the middle of the park, United lack that bit of quality to really come in if either are injured.
Vaulks would be a good option in this sense, with the feeling he’d be better equipped to step in ahead of the likes of John Lundstram and Paul Coutts.
While Coutts and Lundstram have done their jobs for the Blades, Vaulks could well be a step up from either of those players.
