Rotherham United are leading the race to sign Sheffield United striker Caolan Lavery on loan, according to the Yorkshire Post.

Discussions have been held between the Blades and the League One side over a loan move for Lavery until the end of the season.

Sheffield United are also keen to offload Samir Carruthers and Nathan Thomas on loan as well as they look to send them out to gain some more game time. League One side Shrewsbury Town are interested in signing Thomas.

Lavery looks to be the first out of the door before the transfer deadline on Wednesday. Rotherham United are eager to bolster their attack having lost their top scorer Kieffer Moore, who was recalled by his parent club Ipswich Town and then sold to Barnsley.

Lavery would be a decent loan signing for Rotherham. Paul Warne’s side are just on the brink of the Play-Offs at the moment and are hopeful of an immediate promotion back to the Championship.

The 25 year-old striker was part of the Sheffield United side who won the League One title last season but he has fallen down the pecking order at the Blades this season due to the form of Leon Clarke, Clayton Donaldson and Billy Sharp.

Sheffield United signed Caolan Lavery from their bitter rivals Sheffield Wednesday in 2016 but he has struggled to make an impact at Bramall Lane. Being loaned out to Rotherham United is a great opportunity for him to rekindle his career and get some more game time.
