Walsall want to bring Febian Brandy back to the Bescot Stadium, writes James Shield.

Dean Smith’s side are among a number of teams to express an interest in the Sheffield United winger after Nigel Clough, the South Yorkshire club’s manager, revealed he will consider offers for the player.

Brandy joined United from Walsall 12 months ago after rejecting the opportunity to sign a new contract with their League One rivals.

However, after collecting his second red card of the campaign soon after Clough took charge in October, the 25-year-old subsequently returned to the Midlands where he made 20 appearances towards the end of last season.

Lyle Taylor, another player seemingly destined to leave Bramall Lane, is being monitored by Falkirk and Partick Thistle.

Previously of AFC Bournemouth and Millwall, he scored 28 goals in 42 outings for Falkirk before arriving at United in July.

Clough, whose team are scheduled to resume training next week, has withdrawn from the race to sign St Mirren’s John McGinn but will continue to keep a record of the midfielder’s progress should he remain in Paisley.

Coventry City’s Callum Wilson, who was the subject of a £1m bid from United last year, is being courted by Wolverhampton Wanderers after continuing his impressive form for Steven Pressley’s side.

Norwich City and AFC Bournemouth are also known to feature among the centre-forward’s admirers. Coventry are thought to value Wilson at around £3m.

Meanwhile, United supporters have been offered the chance to feature in an official book commissioned to celebrate the club’s 125th anniversary.

The first 125 people to place orders - via - will be featured in a roll of honour contained inside the publication.
