'One of the players' - Ex-England star on Sheffield United's interest in 2024 Super Eagles invitee

Former England midfielder Carlton Palmer has reacted to reports linking Sheffield United with a move for 2024 Super Eagles invitee Gabriel Osho.

Osho will depart Kenilworth Road when his contract at Luton Town expires on June 30, 2024 and has been linked with several clubs including Trabzonspor, Sheffield United, Tottenham Hotspur, Aston Villa and Fulham.

The central defender proved he has the quality to play in the Premier League in the past season when in tiptop condition, having scored two goals in twenty-one outings in the top-flight.

On a sporting level, things did not go well for Luton Town and Osho as the Hatters were relegated back to the Championship after just one season in the Premier League.

Palmer has revealed that the uncompleted takeover of Sheffield United is hampering the chances of the Blades reshaping their squad. 

"One of the players that Sheffield United are interested in is Luton’s versatile player, Gabriel Osho," he told Football League World

"Osho can play at right-back and centre-back and was instrumental in Luton’s success over the last few years.

"Luton won’t want to lose him, and although Sheffield United have joined the race to sign him, the problems that they are having with the takeover of the football club not being ratified, is not helping Chris Wilder bring any players in."

Osho, considered one of the top Nigerian defenders that played in the top five European leagues last season, earned an invitation to the Super Eagles for a pair of friendlies against Ghana and Mali in March 2024.

However, the former Reading youth team captain was forced to pull out of the roster after suffering a knee injury against Crystal Palace.
