Oli Burke will be allowed to leave Sheffield United before the end of this month as the Scotland international looks set for an English Championship exit (Sun).
The 24-year-old forward has 13 caps for Scotland and has been with Sheffield United since last summer. But after two goals with one assist in 33 games, manager Slavisa Jokanovic is ready to let him leave.
Burke will either be allowed to depart for a ‘bargain price’ or on a loan deal. Sheffield United have an abundance of forwards and Burke is one that could make way after relegation to the English Championship from the Premier League.
Nottingham Forest form at the start of his career earned Burke a move to emerging German force RB Leipzig. He was not able to establish himself in the Bundesliga and Burke has been at four clubs since 2017.
Scotland head coach Steve Clarke will announce his squad for September’s World Cup 2022 qualifiers on Tuesday. Burke was last selected for his country last November and missed Euro 202o, likely facing an uphill battle to make Tuesday’s squad too.
