Sheffield United look at deal for Nick Blackman

Sheffield United boss Danny Wilson says he has made an enquiry for Blackburn Rovers striker Nick Blackman.

Blackman, 22, featured just three times for Rovers last season as they were relegated from the Premier League.

Wilson told BBC Radio Sheffield: "We've made an enquiry but that's all it is at the moment.

"I can't really comment further but it's correct to say we have an interest in him. Goals will get you where you want to be."

The former Macclesfield man enjoyed a successful loan spell with Motherwell at the start of the 2010-11 season, scoring 10 goals in 18 league appearances before following former Steelmen manager Craig Brown to Aberdeen for the end of the season.

His spell with the Dons was less profitable as he scored just twice in 15 games.

Meanwhile, Wilson is also concerned about his side's lack of cover in the centre-half position.

Former skipper Chris Morgan announced his retirement earlier this month and Haitian Lescinel Jean-Francois is still recovering from a knee injury.

"We've got no centre-halves and we can't wait for Lescinel to get fit but we can't push him," he continued.

"Matt Hill can play there and Tony McMahon can play there but I am just keeping my fingers crossed that nothing happens to anyone in the mean time."
