Sheffield United fans are reacting after the Blades defender, Jack O'Connell, was pictured training with a Birmingham City player.

Che Adams - who was albeit briefly a teammate of O'Connell at Sheffield United - is being heavily linked with a move away from Birmingham this summer, having scored 22 Championship goals last season.

 

And United are expected to strengthen in Adams' position, having seen their senior options cut to two - plus the transfer listed duo, Leon Clarke and Ched Evans - after the loan spells of Scott Hogan and Gary Madine ended.

It is no surprise then that the image has piqued the attention of several of a Sheffield United persuasion after being shared by O'Connell earlier this week.

They’ll want a ******* fortune 

But not all Blades fans experienced the same thought process...

A valuation in excess of £20 million has been mooted for Adams (The Times), although Sheffield United would not have to pay as much as any rival suitors, if reports of a sell-on clause are accurate.

Should the Blades be looking at bringing back the Birmingham City striker?
