Chris Wilder is hopeful he can bring in new additions next week to strengthen his Sheffield United squad – but he says he may have to walk away from some deals unless more progress can be made. The Blades boss revealed on Thursday that he is planning to bring in up to four new signings as well as moving some players out as he finalises his squad for the coming Premier League campaign.
Chris Wilder said “They’ll be in when we can get them over the line, We may have to walk away from some deals, we may have to take our time on deals, but there are definitely targets and they are position-specific reflecting on last season and what we need, what worked and what hasn’t worked. We have to be smart and inventive and if it means player trading then it means player trading, if it means loan market then it means loans, if it means free transfers or a couple of small deals then that’s the way it’s going to be. It’s a bit frustrating, we have plates spinning and I am frustrated because I want everybody in – that’s the nature of the business. All three parties have to agree on deals, players, agents and clubs and it gets a bit frustrating because everybody wants to do the business. It’s not straightforward. The easy part is recognising what you want and who fits the bill, the tough part, especially for us, is getting that over the line. There will be players moving out, we need to make sure that the squad is balanced and ticks a lot of boxes, If they don’t they will be part of the group. If the trades and the deals don’t work then they are in and they understand that. Obviously, the numbers are down because of the players we have let go but the players if they are here we will go with that.”
