The Blades have repeatedly been linked with centre-back Woolfenden, one of Town's stand-out performers this season, with The Sun claiming today that boss Chris Wilder is planning a £10m raid for both him and Anderlecht's Elias Cobbaut.

The report adds that £7m would be the bid for Cobbaut, with £3m being offered to Paul Lambert for his star young defender.

Woolfenden, 21, only broke into Town's first team this season after spending time on loan at Swindon last campaign.
