Sheffield United are the latest name to thrown their name in the hat for St Mirren’s Jamie McGrath (IM).

The Irish international scored 17 goals from midfield last season for St Mirren as they finished seventh in the Scottish Premiership. He opened his league tally for this season in Saturday’s 2-2 draw at Dundee, Sheffield United links emerging over the weekend.

Wigan Athletic have had a bid rejected for McGrath but it is now believed that English Championship club Sheffield United are keen. Premier League side Watford are also keeping tabs on the midfielder available for less than seven figures this summer.

St Mirren manager Jim Goodwin said last month: “There’s not many midfielder playing top-flight football in Europe that have scored 17 goals – so we knew there would be serious interest in McGrath. There’s certain midfielders in Scotland who are being spoken about at £2-3 million – and they aren’t at Celtic or Rangers.

 

“I question why we don’t get those types of offers for McGrath, who has scored 17 goals. We aren’t putting a valuation of £1 million on Jamie – we are realistic – but we will not be shafted by anybody.”
