Sheffield United boss Chris Wilder supposedly wants to sign Watford striker Jerome Sinclair following an injury to Blades striker Caolan Lavery’s eye-socket according to the Yorkshire Post.

The former West Brom and Liverpool youth-product could potentially be available on a loan deal should Sheffield United attempt to agree on a deal with the Premier League club today but time is running out for the Blades with less than 11 hours until the window slams shut.

Sinclair signed for Watford for £4 million during last summer and has made 5 appearances for the Hornets since signing for the Premier League side on a permanent deal.

Sinclair has spent time on loan in the Championship on two occasions with Wigan Athletic in 2015 and Birmingham City during the second part of last season and if he was to move to Sheffield United, he could gain some more valuable experience to help him break into Watford’s team.

Sinclair would likely partner Billy Sharp if he was to sign for Sheffield United up front and Sharp’s experience would be incredibly beneficial for Sinclair and if the striker can play regularly for a full season in the Championship, it could help his claims in becoming a regular starter at Vicarage Road.

If Wilder is to get his man, he will have to act quickly with only a limited amount of time before the transfer window slams shut.

The striker would be a great acquisition for the Blades but with Wilder wanting to sign Sinclair so late on in the window, it could be difficult to get a quick deal over the line, should Watford want to loan out the youngster.
