Over the weekend reports began to suggest that newly relegation West Bromwich Albion were sniffing around Sheffield United goalkeeper Simon Moore.

The Star had reported previously that agreement was already in place between the club and the player to open talks ahead of his contract expiring next summer, but the expectation was those talks would be held in December time with there being no immediate rush.

With speculation surrounding interest from West Brom however, they are now reporting that talks have been reset for this summer as manager Chris Wilder does not want to lose the 28-year-old despite our capture of Manchester United stopper Dean Henderson earlier this transfer window.

The Midlands club with Premier League parachute payments can certainly offer him a significant wage uplift, but having just signed Sam Johnstone themselves Moore would likely be a backup option, so with the possibility of greater game time at Bramall Lane, United are said to be confident of getting a new deal agreed quickly.
