BPL club consider increasing bid for Sheff Utd youngster

The Mirror reports that Everton may return to Sheffield United with an improved offer for forward Dominic Calvert-Lewin. A £1million offer from the Premier League club was rejected but the Toffees still hope to snap the player up.

The Goodison Park club hope to add the 20-year-old to their Under-21 squad, with a view to him continuing his development and turning out for the first-team in the future. Sheffield United value the player much higher than the original fee offered.

Calvert-Lewin enjoyed a productive loan spell in League Two with Northampton Town last season. The Cobblers eventually went on to win the League Two title under Chris Wilder, who has since become the manager of Sheffield United.

The League One club however are keen to keep the player, with Wilder seeing the best of him at Northampton last season and in pre-season over the last few weeks. He is set to play more of a part in the Blades first-team, but Everton still remain keen.

It all depends on how much Everton desperately want the player and are willing to pay for him. Since coming through the ranks, Calvert-Lewin has played a total of 11 matches for the Bramall Lane club. His last appearance came in the 3-0 away victory at Chesterfield in April.
