Stuart McCall could bring Motherwell striker Michael Higdon with him if he is appointed as Sheffield United’s new manager, Scottish sources claim.

McCall has cut short his summer holiday to meet with United officials, as they look to appoint a successor to Danny Wilson.

McCall, along with MK Dons chief Karl Robinson, has emerged as a front-runner, after leading Motherwell to second place in the Scottish Premier League last season.

Higdon. who hit 26 goals last season, said: “Motherwell can’t compete with the budget of Sheffield United. They’re a bigger club and I’m sure the manager is the same as the players here. He will have ambition and he’ll want to do as well as he can in his career.

“You’d think it would be a no-brainer to move to Sheffield United due to the size of the club.”
