Sheffield United are interested in signing Cardiff City striker Gary Madine on loan, as reported by The72 earlier today.

Madine, who is 28 years-old, joined Cardiff last January for a fee in the region of £6 million but is still yet to find the net for the Bluebirds in 19 appearances.

He has played five games this season in the Premier League but could now be allowed to leave the Welsh side in search of more regular first-team action.

Madine has previously played for the likes of Carlisle United, Sheffield Wednesday, Blackpool, Coventry City and Bolton Wanderers. He is experienced in the Football League and has racked up over 350 career appearances.

He impressed the most at Bolton where he scored 26 goals in 107 appearances for the Trotters which earned him a move to the Cardiff City Stadium

Sheffield United will be hoping he can rekindle that type of form if they are able to land him this month. The potential move would raise some eyebrows considering his history with the Blades’ bitter rivals Sheffield Wednesday.

However, surely United fans won’t care if Madine comes in and scores the goals to fire them back to the Premier League?

Here is how their fans have reacted on Twitter to the Gary Madine rumours-
