Sheffield United star Harry Maguire has been reflecting on the team’s tour of Scotland and says it has helped to get them match fit for the start of the season.

The Sheffield United centre-half, who made his U21 debut against Northern Ireland last season, is targeting a return to international football saying it would be a dream come true to represent England.

He made that comment earlier this week after Bramall Lane was selected to stage a friendly against Scotland (August 13.)

Maguire said: “To walk out at our stadium wearing my country’s shirt would possibly be the biggest honour I could have. But there’s a lot to do before I can think about that. The thing I’m focused on at the moment is doing well for us.

“We’ve got a new manager so everyone wants to impress and if I don’t do well for United there’s no way I’ll be in the team. Everything stems from how I do for my club. Being involved in that game would be brilliant but I can’t look that far ahead.”

Maguire, 20, is expected to enjoy a promiment role when United complete their tour of Scotland at Raith Rovers this evening.

* Weir says “there is nothing concrete” in reports that former Rangers’ Kris Boyd has agreed to join United.

United have inserted “a significant” sell-on clause into the deal which saw Jordan Chapell join Torquay.
