Sheffield United eye move for Bishop

HITC Sport understands that Sheffield United are among a number of clubs chasing Scunthorpe United midfielder Neal Bishop.

HITC Sport understands that Scunthorpe United midfielder Neal Bishop is a target for several clubs during this summer's transfer window.

Bishop enjoyed a fantastic debut season at Scunthorpe last term and his performances at Glanford Park have not gone unnoticed by rival clubs.

The 33-year-old, who joined the Iron from Blackpool last summer, scooped three 'Player of the Season' awards at the club following his stellar performances for them.

Bishop is entering the final year of his contract at Scunthorpe and the midfielder's suitors are ready to test Scunthorpe's resolve to hang onto their captain.

Sheffield United are thought to be leading the chase for Bishop as Blades boss Nigel Adkins is keen to bring in the experienced midfielder.

Adkins is in the market for midfield reinforcements after letting Michael Doyle leave this summer and he sees Bishop's experience and leadership qualities as something that will enhance his options next season
