Sheffield United have reportedly bid £5m for Martyn Waghorn, and with us seeking a new striker, I thought I’d asked fans whether we should challenge the Blades for the 28-year-old.

The majority of those polled felt we should try and make a move for the Ipswich striker, even with the reported embargo in place:

Since I published the poll, Sheffield United boss Chris Wilder has distanced himself from reports linking his team with a move for Waghorn.

He told a local radio station that Ipswich rate the 5ft 10 forward at “£8m to £10m,” which led to the Blades ruling themselves out of the running.

If that is indeed the price tag then I don’t think we’ll be interested in him either. Prices in the Championship are reaching pretty eye-watering figures.

Waghorn’s 16 goals last season demonstrate he is a very good player at this level, but there’s no way a club would consider matching his asking price.

  • Looks like the sensible ones are still on holiday. Lets splash out a load of money just to try a player out. I’m sure Monk is looking at players we have never heard of or certainly not on the media radar. How may agree with that?

  • Sounds like someone’s been drinking too much decided his worth 10 million his he bollix 3 million at the most five to break his contract no more than that.

  • 8 to 10 million my back side . I still think Jack Marriott is worth punt ,fast young and very hungry . Give the lad ago even Bazza fry has said he would love to see Jack Marriott play for blues. KRO SOTV
