Bradford City want to sign Sheffield United striker Billy Sharp on loan, according to The Sun journalist Alan Nixon on Twitter.
The Bantams have been busy so far this summer and are looking to further bolster their ranks by loaning Sharp to help mount a promotion push next season.
Their new manager, Michael Collins, has signed goalkeeper Richard O’Donnel from Northampton Town, Joe Riley from Manchester United, Sean Scannell and Jack Payne from Huddersfield Town, George Miller from Middlesbrough and Hope Akpan from Burton Albion.
Bradford are confident that the upcoming season is the one where they can finally gain promotion to the Championship after a spree of impressive signings.
They have now set their sights on Sheffield United striker Billy Sharp. The experienced frontman will be hard to sign for Bradford though as his wage demands could prove difficult to meet. It could depend on who and who many strikers the Blades sign before the transfer window shuts.
Billy Sharp is a proven goal scorer in the Football League and would be a huge signing for Bradford if they could pull it off. The 32-year-old has played for Sheffield United since 2015 and helped them win the League One title last year.
The former Scunthorpe United, Doncaster Rovers, Southampton, Nottingham Forest, Reading and Leeds United forward has scored 211 career goals in 502 appearances to date. Bradford are hoping that he can inspire them to promotion to the Championship next season, but any move will take some doing by the Yorkshire side.
