Sheffield United manager Danny Wilson is confident of winning his battle to keep teenage striker Jordan Slew.

Sheffield United manager Danny Wilson is confident of winning his battle to keep teenage striker Jordan Slew.

The new Blades boss is adamant that Bramall Lane offers the 18-year-old a shorter route to playing in the Premier League than actually joining a top flight club at this stage of his career.

Wilson, who does not expect any follow up from Fulham in their rejected £500,000 bid, is having to play a waiting game following talks with Slew’s agent on a new deal with United.

But he insisted: “I think we’ll get there. Jordan has a big opportunity to play first-team football here. And I don’t think he should neglect that too easily for the sake of slight interest from a Premier League club.
