The sale of David Brooks to Bournemouth could actually help Sheffield United on two fronts in the transfer market this summer.
The Sheffield Star reports that not only will the money received for Brooks see the Blades make an approach for Southampton's Sam Gallagher, but also boost their hopes of keeping hold of Jack O'Connell.
This has understandably boosted the coffers at Bramall Lane, which means that manager Chris Wilder can make his move for Gallagher and retain the services of O'Connell amid reported interest from Brighton and Hove Albion.
Seagulls boss Chris Hughton has turned his attention to the defender after becoming frustrated in a pursuit of Liam Moore, whom parent club Reading are demanding £15m for.
Yet while Brighton are interested in O'Connell no bid has been made as yet and Wilder is said to be relaxed about the situation because of United's improved financial situation following the sale of Brooks.
