Wilder to oversee major clearout at Sheffield Utd

Sheffield United boss Chris Wilder is ready to oversee a major clearout ahead of their Premier League return.

The Daily Mail says with five players also seeing their loan spells come to an end, Wilder has just 16 players left in his first-team squad.

Defenders Martin Cranie and Daniel Lafferty, midfielder Paul Coutts and strikers Conor Washington will leave when their contracts expire this summer.

Ched Evans, Leon Clarke, Jake Wright, Samir Carruthers, Nathan Thomas, Ben Heneghan and Ricky Holmes have all been placed on the transfer list.

Boss Chris Wilder told the club website: "We have had a fantastic season and I've thanked the players for their contribution but attentions have quickly turned to what is set to be another exciting campaign."

Loanees Dean Henderson, Kieran Dowell, Scott Hogan, Gary Madine and Marvin Johnson will return to their parent clubs with the Blades thought to be keen to re-sign Manchester United keeper Henderson and Everton midfielder Dowell.
