Sheffield United will not be paying over the odds for Sunderland defender Nyron Nosworthy, despite the latest injury setback.

Nosworthy, a player who has been on the Blades radar since his loan spell ended at the close of the season is valued at over half a million by Steve Bruce’s men, and despite wanting to offload the former Gillingham man, refuse to drop their asking price.

The Sheffield Star states that a ‘senior source’ had this to say about the defender:
‘As things stand, the deal is far too expensive. We have to be careful not to commit ourselves to things that might prove a burden in the future.

Sunderland want a lot of money and, while Nyron would probably be ready to take a pay cut, when you put the two sums together they might still add up to more than we can afford.

It’s a shame but we have to be sensible.


It could lead the Blades to once again revert to free transfers and loan signings, with Arsenal centre-back Kyle Bartley a reported target.

  • Can’t blame the club for saying we can’t afford it – but where’s plan B. Forgive me if I’ve missed something but do we have a defence (plus cover)? Weren’t we told “we’ve learned our lessons from last year”, “want deals done before we go to Malta”. This season is still looking as if its going to be a shambles. I’ll be only too happy to be proved wrong.

  • whats with all the wendys coming on here thinking there are real madrid in the 3rd division??must be missing something here.

  • BFL….You have to understand that wendy fans think that maybe they have a chance at winning a few games next season, even if it is against the likes of Rochdale, Exeter and Dagenham & Roadbridge. If you had been a pig supporter over the past decade, you would realise that you have to live in a pretend world, especially if you have to contend with the big club across the city continuing to move further and further ahead of you.
