NEWS: Midfielder set for Sheffield United medical
Sheffield United have agreed a deal to sign Wolverhampton Wanderers midfielder Lee Evans, according the Football Insider.
The Blades have had a bid accepted worth around £750,000 and Evans has been granted permission to hold talks with the club and undergo a medical.
Manager Chris Wilder is keen on bringing in new midfielders to the club this month, with United winning just once in nine league games since the injury to key man Paul Coutts.
Evans is set to become the clubs second January arrival, with the Blades having already agreed a deal to sign Southend United midfielder Ryan Leonard.
As reported by the 72, United have also had a bid rejected by Rangers for midfielder Josh Windass, emphasising the importance the Wilder has placed on beefing up the centre of midfield.
Evans began his professional career at Newport County. During his time at the club he made 25 appearances and scored three goals, before joining Wolves in a £200,000 deal.
Evans has struggled to establish himself as a first team regular at Wolves and in 2015 he was loaned out to Bradford City. He played 35 games for the Bantams, helping the club finish 5th in League One.
The one time capped Wales midfielder has spent the first half of this season on loan at Wigan Athletic. His impressive performances have seen the Latics top the League One table, alerting the Blades of his services.
Evans was due to have a season on loan at Wigan, but was recalled early after United expressed their interest in signing him on a permanent deal. Wigan were unable to match the Blades’ offer for the midfielder, allowing Evans to ply his trade in the second tier once again.
