Sheffield United now have a crucial summer transfer window ahead of them as they look to keep their place in the top-flight.
Chris Wilder’s side finished second in the Championship this season but both Fulham and Cardiff City have proven that staying up is no walk in the park.
The latest name to be linked with a move to Bramall Lane is Birmingham City’s exciting, if erratic, winger Jota, report the Sheffield Star.
The Spaniard has impressed during his time at St. Andrews, previously attracting interest from the Blades back in the January transfer window but failed to agree on a deal.
However, Wilder and co will be hoping that their new-found Premier League status could swing a potential deal back in their favour.
But would he get in their starting XI?
“The Blades are in need of a creative player who can unlock defences, and Jota does fit the bill in this sense.
“I think he would slot into the attacking midfield role at present, but the fact he is not proven in the Premier League is a concern.
“Therefore, Wilder should be more ambitious in recruitment by looking for a player who has undoubtable ability to deliver in the top-flight.”
“I think he could.
“Jota has that spark to unlock games almost with a single flick of a boot, and that could be crucial to The Blades getting the results they need to stay in the Premier League next season.
“It always seems harsh for someone who helped win promotion not to get his chance at the next level, but if a change will benefit the side overall, then it has to be done.”
“I doubt it.
“There is certainly potential for a new signing to come in and slot straight into the Blades’ starting XI but I would imagine they would need to have Premier League experience.
“Jota’s lack of it means he would probably start on the bench, however, there is no reason he could not force his way in.”
