Wolves fight for Maguire
Wolves have had a second bid turned down by Sheffield United as they look to grasp the services of highly-rated centre half Harry Maguire. The 2013/14 League One Champions were thought to have made a second bid for the 21 year old in the region of £1.5 million plus add-ons, but the Blades refuse to budge. In an interview, United’s Managing Director, Mal Brannigan, stated, “We’ve had one or two bids that have been rejected so far for Harry. […] It’s very much in his interests to extend his contract which we’d like him to do and there’s an offer on the table for him.”
