The last couple of days there has been chatter on Twitter and in the Sheffield United supporter forums that the club had made a bid to sign free agent defender Zak Whitbread. And while I can confirm they did have interest at one time, any reports of an offer from the Blades will hereby deserve a brisk wave of our Offside Flag. Just did not happen, folks.
However, I can also confirm that the New England Revs are in for the former Millwall and Derby man, who could nicely fill their current center back needs. I would say they are past the initial hello phase, but not quite to the placing-offer-on-table stage.
This last line is not to be confused with any sort of actual reporting, but I kinda have a good vibe about this situation. I think it could work out and I think he could fit like a glove in that side if healthy. Stay tuned...
