First, they solved the issue of the goalkeeper on Bramal Lane. Wes Foderingham arrived from Rangers as a free agent, they paid as much as 20,500,000 euros for Bournemouth's Aaron Remsdale. But the fans had to be patient for the right reinforcements.
And now Sheffield United has taken action. In just two days, four new players in Chris Wilder's team. Very interesting. The last among equals - Oliver Burke. It is about a player who was once bought by Leipzig for 15,200,000 euros, and then sold to West Bromwich Albion for the same amount of money.
And although the Scottish winger did not develop in accordance with (too) high expectations, Burke is only 23 years old. "We needed speed and Oli gave it to us. He has all the attributes we were looking for, we know that in these last few seasons not everything has developed as he had hoped, but now it is up to us to give him a fresh start.
When you put everything on paper, it was an extraordinary summer for us and we will be 100 percent stronger than last season. That's how it should be ", enthusiastic Wilder, who delighted the football planet last season with Sheffield's attacking game.
Burke fits into sistem
He now plans to further improve the team. Not exactly bomastic reinforcements, but players he thinks fit perfectly into his system. Burke went to the barter that allowed West Bromwich Albion to keep Calum Wilson, he scored 16 goals for Slaven Bilic's team last season.
Burk, on the other hand, had no role in the team. When Bilic brought four attackers in January, he sent him on loan to Alaves, and he was not very lucky there either. Now he has a new chance. Before him, Ethan Ampadu came from Chelsea on loan, who was supposed to play in Leipzig last season, but played only 277 minutes in Germany.
On the idea of Ryan Giggs, the coach of Wales, he has now chosen a club in which he would have to have more minutes. That would certainly not be the case in London. Then, there are two defenders, both of them arrived from Derby and although there is no confirmation, they cost Sheffield around 16,500,000 euros.
Not on the left Max Lowe, on the right Jayden Bogle. "Jaden and Mousset are here to put a lot of pressure on George Baldock and Andy Stevens. It is important to have players with the right characters, athletic and technically very good players.
They are both modern wing defenders and I can't wait to start working together. "This is not a warning (for Baldoc and Stevens), football is a game for everyone, that's a fact," Wilder rubbed his hands contentedly, who said last week that he hoped for five newcomers. He’s already got four, and that’s not a small amount.
