SHEFFIELD United have lodged an undisclosed bid, believed to be worth around £100,000, for Motherwell winger Jamie Murphy ahead of the forthcoming transfer window.

“Ports (centre-forward Chris Porter) has got a slight reflex problem with his hip and there was no point in risking him,” Danny Wilson, the Sheffield United manager said.

“Cressy (player-coach Richard Cresswell) was away watching a game for me because, as we’ve pointed out before, he’s got an important dual role now.”
