Chelsea's Jamal Blackman is hoping to rejoin Sheffield United next season, according to the Sun.
Blackman spent the past campaign on loan at Bramall Lane, where he made 33 appearances.
Following his return to Chelsea earlier this month, the 24-year-old hinted he would be open to coming back in a post on his Instagram page.
It’s been an amazing season for me with @sufc_official. I’ve had ups and down but I’ve enjoyed every minute of being a blade. I want to thank the staff, my team mates and massively the fan loved being apart of this team and involved in the achievements ❤️ great learning curve for me as a player. So much more to come from this team and me who knows what the future holds ❤️
And the Sun states, on page 52 of its printed edition on Tuesday, that Blackman 'is eyeing a £2.5 million move to Sheffield United - despite his new three-year deal with Chelsea'.
The wording of the newspaper's claim could be misleading, however, given that Blackman is last reported to have extended his contract at the start of the season.
The Londoner's Chelsea deal still has three years left to run, although he has yet to make a senior, competitive appearance for the Blues.
A £2.5 million deal for Blackman would represent Sheffield United's highest spend on a single player since Ched Evans nine years ago.
Should Sheffield United bring back Blackman?
