Sheffield United have made contact with Oxford United over how much Rob Hall would cost according to a report from HITC Sport.

Hall was released by Bolton Wanderers following their relegation from the Sky Bet Championship but was soon picked up by Oxford. Despite having a lot of pressure on him to perform because he was coming in as a replacement for Kemar Roofe who had an amazing season before moving to Leeds United, he has performed very well in the short amount of time he’s been at the Kassam Stadium.

While he missed the start of the season after suffering a knee injury, Hall has broken back into the first team after his recovery and has been impressive, making 11 appearances and scoring one goal. But this has been noted by their Sky Bet League One rivals Sheffield United who are now looking to sign the forward. According to this report, they have got in contact with Oxford and are aiming to see how much a move for the former West Ham United man would cos them.

The Blades’ head coach Chris Wilder worked with Hall when he was the manager of Oxford and the forward was at the club for his loan spells there. Wilder liked the former England youth international when he was managing them and as he looks for more attacking options to help them seal promotion from League One after five years being stuck in the third tier of the EFL. They are currently on top of the league and will hope to stay there in their match against Bury today.
