Premiership alerted as Sheff Utd prepare to sell Kilgallon

Sheffield United boss Kevin Blackwell has confirmed that defender Matthew Kilgallon has rejected the offer of a contract extension. Blackwell admits the Blades are no longer in a position to offer the centre-half a lucrative deal and the club will now look to cash in during the New Year.

"It is a fait accompli that 'Killa' will be going," said Blackwell in the Yorkshire Post.

"He spoke to (chief executive) Trevor Birch, but we can't reach an agreement. At the moment, this club is not in a position to offer outrageous terms to anyone. We can't afford to pay the terms we used to.

"With the interest that has been shown, it will be difficult to keep him. There is significant interest from a few Premier League clubs now as well as one or two in the Championship."
