Sheffield United are ready to let Darius Henderson join Millwall in an attempt to kick-start a signing flurry by new boss Danny Wilson.

Sheffield United are ready to let Darius Henderson join Millwall in an attempt to kick-start a signing flurry by new boss Danny Wilson.

Henderson is the subject of the first serious move for any of United’s top earners with Millwall poised to follow up an enquiry for the striker.

The London club are now surprise leaders in a field that also includes Hull, while Middlesbrough’s earlier interest appears to have petered out.

Millwall are intent on making a determined push in the Championship after finishing just outside the play-offs in their comeback to the second tier and have money to invest following their sale of Steve Morison to Norwich.

Lions boss Kenny Jackett shares a link with Henderson’s former club, Watford, having been a player and manager at Vicarage Road.

The 29-year-old’s move to Bramall Lane cost the Blades £2m. Transfer valuations have plummeted since then, making it unlikely that United would get even close to realising a similar figure.
