Redfearn's Leeds winger target Martyn Woolford in-demand, possible replacement for current Whites transfer option Jamie Murphy

Bramall Lane Sheffield United

Former Millwall winger Martyn Woolford is wanted by Sheffield United, with possible implications for Leeds.

Free agent winger Martyn Woolford is being lined up for a move to Sheffield United, report the Sheffield Star.

The experienced attacker left Millwall at the end of June after his contract expired, having come close to a move to Leeds in January.

Former Leeds head coach Neil Redfearn told the Yorkshire Evening Post in February how he tried to sign him during the Winter transfer window, only to be unsuccessful, and expressed his regret and not landing the winger.

The news Woolford is wanted by Sheffield United could yet have implications for Leeds, considering their own interest in Jamie Murphy.

The YEP reported just last week how Leeds want Scottish winger Murphy as part of any deal to sell Billy Sharp, who is wanted by Sheffield United.

New Blades manager Nigel Adkins bossed both Billy Sharp and Martyn Woolford at Scunthorpe, and the Sheffield Star report the ex-Millwall winger is interested in re-uniting with his old manager.

He could be the chip which needs to fall into place for the Sharp-Murphy swap to be activated, although if not all the same he would be a smart addition for the League One promotion chasers.
