Sheffield United: Blades still won’t be rushed

Although they are a month into their search for a new manager, Sheffield United will refuse to rush their final decision at this stage of the proceedings.

It appears matters have reached a delicate stage with the United hierarchy more or less ready to decide on who the new man will be but with some factors still to finalise.

Of course, they are not the only club who have been taking their time filling the managerial vacancy. Wolves have also been without a manager since the end of the season when they got rid of Dean Saunders - not a name that has surfaced on the United radar.

Wolves were strongly linked last week with the Crewe Alexandra manager Steve Davis who, initially under Dario Gradi, has a good reputation for working with and developing young players - assets that would find some favour at the Lane.

Once an agreement has been reached, things can move very quickly, but it appears it could be next week before there is any official announcement.

The legends charity football day at Bramall Lane on Sunday raised £15,000 which has been doubled to £30,000 by sponsors Westfield Health and all proceeds will go to the new Cancer Research and Treatment Suite at Weston Park Hospital.
