Sheffield United interested in Middlesbrough forward
Ashley Fletcher is attracting interest from Premier League side Sheffield United who are set for a return to the Championship after two years.
According to reports, Premier League side Sheffield United are interested in signing Middlesbrough star Ashley Fletcher. The 25-year-old has been at the club since 2017, and with his current contract expiring this summer, he may be on his way out of the club.
Sheffield United currently sit 20th in the Premier League with 14 points from four wins and two draws. They only have nine matches left to fight for their Premier League status. The Blades look sure of getting relegated at the end of the Premier League season, bringing an end to a two-year spell in the top flight.
They are most likely going to fancy their chances of bouncing back immediately by fighting for promotion next season, and they will need all the players possible. They've now been linked to signing Ashley Fletcher, a player who has shifted negotiation of a contract renewal at Middlesbrough until the end of the season.
