Sheffield United's David Brooks is a sought-after player, according to recent reports.

Having tied the newly-capped Wales international to a new four-year deal last month, however, the ball is very much in United's court should said interest firm up.

Brooks has impressed in his 18 appearances this season - his first in the Football League - with the wins at rivals Sheffield Wednesday and Leeds United standing out above others.

And according to those aforementioned reports, Sheffield United can expect an eight-figure fee if and when the 20-year-old moves on to bigger and better things.

Chris Wilder, the Sheffield United manager,  looks on during the pre season friendly match between Sheffield United and Stoke City at Bramall Lane on July 25, 2017 in Sheffield, England.

Any money earned would likely end up in Chris Wilder's coffers, however, and would surely allow the Blades to compete for a higher calibre of player - although as Wilder will tell you, that doesn't always mean better.

One player whose signing would almost certainly appease the Bramall Lane faithful is that of Brighton & Hove Albion winger Jamie Murphy.

And according to bookmakers Bet Victor, United are already favourites to sign Murphy - who had a successful two-year stint with the Blades earlier this decade and hasn't appeared for Brighton since late September.

The 28-year-old would slot seamlessly into Brooks' role, and bring with him the Championship promotion experience that could see Wilder's men over the line this season - with money perhaps left over for further recruits.

Sheffield United fans - would you consider Brooks' sale if it meant a return for Murphy?
