Sheffield United could be in line to receive another surprise windfall after their former winger Jamie Murphy was linked with moves to Sunderland, Fulham, Celtic and Rangers.

The Blades sold Murphy to Brighton & Hove Albion two summers ago in a deal worth £1.7 million, according to The Sheffield Star.

But after starting less than half of Brighton's Championship fixtures last season, it is possible the Glaswegian could be on the move again following the Seagulls' promotion.

According to Sky Sports News HQ, Sunderland, Fulham, Celtic and Rangers are all interested in taking Murphy off of their hands, with the broadcaster adding that bids of £4 million could be considered.

And given Chris Wilder's comments to BBC Radio Sheffield earlier this summer, a percentage of that fee would be due to Sheffield United, in what would be another boost to the Blades' coffers.

The Championship newcomers have already received 10 per cent of the profit made by Hull City on Harry Maguire's £17 million transfer to Leicester City - thought to be around £1.4 million [Sheffield Star] - and 10 per cent of the initial £45 million fee received by Tottenham Hotspur for Kyle Walker, whose transfer to Manchester City could see yet more money heading the pair's way [also Sheffield Star].

Wilder joked: "If Harry Maguire and Kyle [Walker] and Jamie Murphy want moves then get yourself off lads."

Where will Murphy end up - Sunderland, Fulham, Celtic, Rangers or other?
