Sheffield United to Sell Four Players in Summer Transfer Window

Sheffield United is set to allow four players to leave the club this summer following their relegation from the Premier League. The players up for sale include Anel Ahmedhodzic, Vinicius Souza, Anis Slimane, and Bénie Traoré.

Anel Ahmedhodzic, a 25-year-old defender who joined Sheffield United from Malmo in July 2022, has attracted interest from Italian sides Napoli and Atalanta. "Ahmedhodzic's price tag was previously set at £20 million," face, stars according to The Sun's Alan Nixon.

Vinicius Souza, a midfielder who arrived at Bramall Lane from Lommel in August, looks set to depart despite being just one year into a four-year contract. Anis Slimane, another midfielder who joined the Blades from Brondby in July, has found his game time limited.

Bénie Traoré, an attacker who made the move from Hacken in the summer, was loaned out to French side Nantes in January and is unlikely to have a future at the club. Traoré has a contract with Sheffield United until the summer of 2027.

These departures are part of a larger rebuild effort by Sheffield United, which is looking to return to the Premier League next season. Manager Chris Wilder will be hoping to use the funds generated from these sales to build a more competitive team.

In addition to these four players, midfielder Gustavo Hamer may also be sold if the club can recoup the £15 million they paid for him. The Blades have been linked with several players, including Sunderland's Anthony Patterson and Leeds United's Luke Ayling, as they prepare for life back in the Championship.

Sheffield United was relegated from the Premier League after a disastrous campaign, becoming the first team to concede over 100 goals in a single season. Manager Chris Wilder has failed to make an impact since returning for a second spell at the club in December. The sale of Ahmedhodzic, Souza, Slimane, and Traoré is expected to kickstart the club's efforts to rebuild and compete for promotion in the 2024-25 season.
