Sheffield United manager Kevin Blackwell insists there are other goalkeepers on the radar following Paddy Kenny’s departure, but it’s still expected that Steve Simonsen is the number one choice.

Speaking to the club’s official website today, Blackwell names two Premier League goalkeepers, including Manchester City loanee Marton Fulop.

‘Steve did well and we know all about him but it is far from nailed on and there are other quality goalkeepers about such as Jamie Ashdown (free agent) and Marton Fulop (Sunderland) who we are also looking at.

‘I would really like to tie a deal up by next week because we had major problems last season by not starting with a regular number one. It is very important that we get one in and bedded down quickly.’

Despite Blackwell’s claims, it’s still believed that Steve Simonsen is the man to start between the sticks next season, and could be unveiled as early as Thursday.

  • A classic example of KB stating the obvious! I am much relieved he has worked out we need a keeper – I didn’t fancy coming out of retirement.
