Sheffield United boss Wilder puts five players up for sale

Sheffield United boss Chris Wilder has put five players up for sale.

Striker Leon Clarke, Samir Carruthers, Ricky Holmes, Jake Wright and Ben Heneghan are not part of Wilder's first-team plans and the annoyed Blades boss has told them to find new clubs.

The transfer window for League One and Two remains open until September 2 and Wilder has urged them to go.

“It depends if they want to go and play football," he said.

“The lads have got to decide what they want to do. I'd rather be a footballer. I'm not saying they should walk away with nothing, but I'd rather be a footballer and get on with it.

“It's up to them. I know, if I was a couple of them, that I'd have been at a new club already.

“I won't name names, but they should maybe think about their careers, rather than sticking something in their back pockets.

“It annoys me immensely, because I've looked after a couple of them.

“Go and get a club. It should have happened a long time ago."
