Sheffield United willing to sell Everton target Ndiaye - sources

Sheffield United will reluctantly listen to offers for star attacker Iliman Ndiaye this summer, sources have told Football Insider.

The Senegal international, 23, is out of contract in 12 months and is the subject of interest from several clubs in the Premier League and overseas.

Ndiaye was the subject of offers in January, but eventually chose to stay at Bramall Lane and help Sheffield United fight for promotion.

But a sale is now being considered with a well-placed Blades source revealing the club are still “some way off” agreeing a new contract with the forward.

Ndiaye is in a similar position to midfield ace Sander Berge, with Football Insider revealing on Friday (23 June) that Berge has his heart set on leaving Sheffield United despite their promotion to the Premier League.

The Yorkshire club have been hamstrung in the summer window thus far due to the ongoing takeover saga at the club.

It is believed the Blades may have to boost their own transfer kitty by selling players in the market.

Sources told Football Insider in March that Everton remain interested in Ndiaye after failing with a January bid.

Football Insider also revealed (17 March) that Newcastle and West Ham sent scouts to watch the forward in action during the 2022-23 campaign.

Ndiaye notched 15 goals and 12 assists in 52 games across all competitions last term – the best season of his career so far.

The Senegal international’s goals proved vital as Sheffield United secured promotion to the Premier League.

However, the 23-year-old’s contract is set to expire in 12 months following his last extension in September 2021.
