Well, we can cross this one off the list.
And given that Chris Wilder apparently doesn’t have many names on that list to begin with, we may as well throw the whole thing in the bin and scrap the whole talk of a new centre-back coming in before the end of the domestic window.
According to reports, Terrence Kongolo is set to have a medical at Fulham this afternoon ahead of a move to Craven Cottage. The Dutch defender has been a target for the Blades ever since Jack O’Connell suffered his injury towards the end of September, but it looks now as if he’s going to be making the move to London instead of across Yorkshire.
Now I personally am not too disappointed with this news, I said when we were first linked with him that I was a little bit hesitant to take him on because of his injury, even if he was likely to only play the occasional game for us with the likes of Ethan Ampadu and Jack Robinson likely to fill in.
Will we bring in a new centre-back before the window closes?
However, I can understand why someone like Wilder might be frustrated with this. He reportedly only wanted to bring in the players that he wanted in the first place, and isn’t going to settle for second best when it comes to replacements.
So now it looks like it going to come down to Ben Davies at Preston North End, or nobody at all. I just hope that he knows what he’s doing on this matter, because one more injury or suspension to the players we have left, and all of a sudden he might start to regret not having the quantity when he was looking for quality.
What about you? Are you disappointed we look set to miss out on Kongolo?
