QPR have rejected a bid by Sheffield United for midfielder Luke Freeman.

The London side want to keep hold of the 27-year-old this summer, as per a report by West London Sport.

Sheffield United are in the hunt for some signings as they prepare for their upcoming Premier League campaign but have seen their first move for Freeman rebuffed. The Blades will have to pay more to land their man.

Freeman scored eight goals in all competitions for the Hoops last season and Chris Wilder sees him as someone who would bolster his sides’ attacking options.

He started his career with spells as a youngster at Charlton Athletic and Gillingham. He was snapped up by Arsenal in 2010 but never made a senior appearance for the Gunners. Instead, he spent on loan at Yeovil Town and Stevenage before joining Stevenage on a permanent basis in 2012.

Freeman became a key player for the Boro and impressed in his two years there. He bagged himself a move to Bristol City in 2014 and helped them win the League One title and Football League trophy in his time at Ashton Gate.
