Sheffield United eyes £8m move for Sunderland star sought by Wolves and Liverpool.



Sheffield United are reportedly considering an £8 million bid for Sunderland goalkeeper Anthony Patterson.

The 21-year-old is a Black Cats academy graduate who excelled in the 2023/24 season despite his youth. He made 45 league appearances, missing only the final day’s defeat to Sheffield Wednesday.

According soccer reporter Alan Nixon’s Patreon page, the Blades are considering a summer move for the England under-21 international. Blades manager Chris Wilder is thought to be looking for a new number one, since Wes Foderingham is out of contract and Ivo Grbic has proven erratic.

Grbic joined Sheffield United in the January transfer window, bringing with him impressive credentials. However, he did not provide the assured presence that Blades fans had hoped for.

Sheffield United are among the clubs associated with Viktor Johansson, who is expected to leave Rotherham United following their relegation to League One. According to the report, a move for Johansson has been postponed as Sheffield United seeks to raise their game.


Sunderland apparently wants more than the £8 million Sheffield United is set to pay, however that could be the best offer they receive. Liverpool and Wolves are reportedly interested in the gifted goalkeeper.

Sheffield United have only one game remaining in their disastrous season, a home encounter against Tottenham Hotspur. Their fate has long been determined, and they will return to the Championship for the 2024/25 campaign.
