Sheffield United boss targets new goalscorer

DANNY Wilson is making a goalscorer a major priority as one of his next signings for Sheffield United.

“Look at the club’s record last season and they did not score enough goals,” said the Blades boss. “The ‘goals for’ column was simply not good enough.

“So, we may have to get someone in to improve that.”

The Blades play their second friendly tonight at Evo-Stik club Worksop Town having opened with a 1-1 draw at Sheffield FC on Saturday.

Wilson is likely to field a side similar in youth and experience to the Saturday one when there were three experienced players in the squad.

He may have a touch extra experience and different players too.

Meanwhile. Kristoffer Løkberg, the former Norway Under-19 midfielder, has left the club by mutual consent after becoming homesick.

The teenager, who arrived at Bramall Lane earlier this year along with fellow Norwegian Erik Tonne after impressing on trial, didn’t make a first-team appearance during his time at the club and has been allowed to return home after talks.

“I spoke to the gaffer and told him that I’m struggling to adapt and settle down here and that I want to go home,” Løkberg revealed.

“He understood and supported me and told me that it wasn’t a problem.

“I can’t pretend I’m happy here any more, and I have to be honest with myself and those around me.

“I would like to thank the club for the opportunity they gave me, and I’m sorry it didn’t work out for me.”
