According to The Daily Mail, Sheffield United may try to sign Scott Hogan on a permanent contract from Aston Villa in the summer transfer window.

Hogan, who can operate as a forward or as a winger, joined United on loan from Villa in the January transfer window.

 

The Republic of Ireland international is scheduled to stay at Bramall Lane until the end of the season.

The Daily Mail has claimed that Chris Wilder’s side may try to make the loan move of Hogan permanent this summer.

Good decision?

The Blades have clinched automatic promotion from the Championship and will play in the Premier League next season.

Wilder does need firepower in his team next season to compete in the Premier League, and Hogan will not be a bad signing on a permanent contract.

According to WhoScored, the former Brentford attacker has made five starts and three substitute appearances in the Championship for United this season, scoring two goals and providing one assist in the process.

Hogan joined Villa from Brentford in January 2017 for a transfer fee reported by BBC Sport to be worth £12 million.
