I want Leicester City striker Jeff Schlupp on loan, says Sheffield United manager Danny Wilson
Sheffield United manager Danny Wilson is interested in taking Leicester City striker Jeff Schlupp on loan.
The Blades boss said he had not yet approached City about taking the 19-year-old on a temporary basis but would be interested if Nigel Pearson decided a loan spell would be best for the Ghana international.
"We would be interested," said Wilson.
"We've kept tabs on Jeffrey. We were in touch with Leicester last season to see what his situation is. He's a quality player.

"We would always look at someone of his calibre."
The Blades are unlikely to be the only side interested in taking Schlupp, who scored six goals while on loan at Brentford the season before last and five times for City during the last campaign.
Several Championship sides, including Crystal Palace have been monitoring the situation.
Schlupp signed a new contract a year ago to keep at City until 2015 and is highly rated by Pearson.
But the City boss knows Schlupp will need competitive games after recovering from knee surgery and a loan could be a good option for all involved.
Meanwhile, Lee Peltier is thrashing out the final details of his move to Leeds and it has been confirmed that Steve Howard, released by City at the end of last season, has joined Hartlepool
