Sheffield Utd boss Robson wants outright deal for Man Utd's Bardsley

Sheffield United boss Bryan Robson is keen to sign Manchester United fullback Phil Bardsley in a permanent deal.

The Mirror says Bardsley is set to sign for Robson's Sheffield United as Sir Alex Ferguson starts to trim down his squad.

Fiery full-back Bardsley has been told he can leave Old Trafford and Robson - who badly needs a new right-back - hopes he will accept a loan move to the Blades with a view to a full-time switch.
