Sheffield United?s Paul Coutts avoids surgery despite horror break

Sheffield United midfielder Paul Coutts did not need surgery after breaking a leg in the weekend win at Burton, manager Chris Wilder has said.

Coutts sustained a season-ending injury when he fractured a tibia in a challenge with Burton forward Marvin Sordell and was carried off in the 51st minute.

“We had some relatively good news, obviously in a poor situation for the boy, and he didn’t need one,” Wilder told the club’s official website.

“He’s out of hospital and back home, but it’s a season-ending injury for us, which is very disappointing.

“He’s in a full cast from thigh to toe and it’s just a healing process now of the tibia, which he fractured and it’s just time.”

Coutts had been instrumental in the Blades’ promotion challenge this season, featuring in all bar one of their Sky Bet Championship matches.

“It’s very disappointing, but we talked about it after the game – it’s a contact sport and players have to put their bodies on the line,” Wilder added.

“Paul was fully committed to taking that shot on, I wouldn’t expect anything less, and unfortunately he’s suffered off the back of it.”

Liverpool, Tottenham in 20m battle to land Wales sensation

Liverpool and Tottenham are reportedly in a £20million battle for Sheffield United winger David Brooks.

A host of Premier League sides are watching the 20-year-old, but Reds boss Jurgen Klopp and Spurs chief Mauricio Pochettino are said to be leading the chase for the Wales star.

Brooks, who was on Manchester City’s books as a youngster, was named Man of the Match on his first senior start for his country against Panama in Cardiff last Tuesday, with several scouts said to be in attendance.

The Blades now face a battle to keep their brightest young talent, who has only made 14 league appearances for the club, with January bids set to be forthcoming.

Sheff Utd skipper Sharp trolls Scotland over 24-man squad

Sheffield United skipper Billy Sharp has trolled Scotland over their latest 24-man squad to face the Netherlands.

Both Paul Coutts and John Fleck have been overlooked by Scotland for next week’s friendly – a fact which has obviously irked striker Sharp.

He tweeted sarcastically: “Fleck and Coutts suspended???”

The Blades midfielders have been hugely influential in the club’s rise to the top of the Championship.

Fleck, 26, has played every minute of the Blades’ 14 Championship games to date, scoring one and grabbing one assist, while Coutts, 29, has made 13 appearances, scoring once.

Fleck and Coutts suspended ???
