Some Sheffield United supporters are urging their side to 'hijack' West Bromwich Albion's proposed move for Romaine Sawyers.

The Express and Star reports that West Brom have agreed a fee in the region of £3 million with Brentford to bring back the former Baggies midfielder.

 

Sheffield United are also thought to be eyeing new additions in Sawyers' position, and were linked with a move for Leroy Fer before the Dutchman rejoined Feyenoord on a one-year deal.

Sawyers has been one of the Championship's most consistent performers since his 2016 move from Walsall, and has scored or made, on average, eight goals a season at second-tier level (Transfermarkt).

And he could prove a shrewd addition for a West Brom side which has lost Stefan Johansen, James Morrison and Wes Hoolahan since the end of last season.
