SHEFFIELD United could cash in if Saints decide to sign Che Adams.

The newly promoted team are due to receive 20 per cent of Adams’ transfer fee if he leaves Birmingham.

It was last week reported in the Daily Echo that the south coast side were ready to reignite their interest in the striker.

Ralph Hasenhuttl tried to sign the 22-year-old back in January, only for the Championship club to reject their £10m offer.

The Daily Telegraph reported that it would take around £14m to sign the striker, which would see Sheffield United bag just shy of £3m.

Adams had a standout 2018/19 with Birmingham, ending the season as their player of the year and top scorer.

It's said that fellow Premier League side Burnley and Crystal Palace are also interested in prizing the striker away from the Championship side.

However, any deal for Adams could prove complicated.

Former Saint Garry Monk was sacked by the St Andrew's outfit on Tuesday after his relationship with chief executive Xuandong Ren had deteriorated.

Saints have already started adding to their squad this summer, with Moussa Djenepo signing a four-year contract at St Mary’s.

Djenepo, 20, cost Saints £14m and became Hasenhuttl’s first signing since taking over back in December.

In a recent interview with Bild, the Austrian admitted he only wants to buy players up to the age of 24.

This is down to them being hungry to prove themselves in the Premier League.
