Manager Chris Wilder continues to tweak his Sheffield United side during the January transfer window and on Tuesday it was confirmed that another one of our highly-rated youth prospects had moved on for pastures new.

20-year-old Callum Semple has worked diligently through our ranks in recent years and the left-sided centre-half becomes the second development player to leave this window following Harvey Gilmour permanent switch out to Tranmere Rovers.

Semple was yet to make his senior bow for us, but in the first half of the 2018/19 campaign he spent time with Queen of the South up in Scotland, making 22 starting appearances, with a further five showings from the substitutes bench and back in early August he scored his first professional goal for them.

He heads north across the border as he departs, signing permanent terms of fellow Scottish side Ross County. It sounds like a free deal, or at least nominal, but United state they have a significant sell on clause along with other bonuses which is something.

Fans reacting on social media felt it could be a mistake though.
