Everton and Liverpool are among the clubs monitoring Sheffield United’s talented young centre back Kyron Gordon.
The 18-year-old has been on the fringe of Chris Wilder’s first team this season, and was named on the bench for the Blades’ third-round FA Cup victory against Bristol Rovers earlier this month.
In July 2019, Gordon signed a two-year professional deal which came into effect once his scholarship ended in the summer.

‘I wanted to bring Kyron, because he’s been involved with the first team a fair bit since pre-season, he’s done well and I thought we might have needed the type of qualities he brings,’ Wilder said after their 3-2 victory against Bristol Rovers.
‘Kyron didn’t get on, but I think he’ll have learned so much from being in and around the lads on a matchday. We know what his attitude is like and it will have taught him a lot.’
Meanwhile, Liverpool are progressing with talks over Derby County forward Kaide Gordon, 16, as they look to reach a fee and agree personal terms.
The 16-year-old has already broken into Derby’s first team but has yet to sign a professional contract.
Liverpool have held talks and want to wrap up a compensation deal as cash-strapped Derby look for £1million plus add-ons to £3m.
