Report: Sheffield United enter race for Aberdeen winger Niall McGinn

Sheffield United appear destined to return to the Championship next season and are looking to make McGinn their first summer recruit.

League One promotion front runners Sheffield United have entered the race to sign Aberdeen winger Niall McGinn, reports the Daily Express.

McGinn, who has scored 13 goals and created 11 in all competitions this season, is out of contract this summer and said to be seeking a move to English football, prompting Aberdeen to admit defeat in keeping him.

Third tier side Oxford United have already offered a pre-contract to the Northern Irishman – along with Scottish outfit Herats – although Sheffield United would surely have the upper hand on the U’s.

The Blades are 13 points clear of the play-off places, and look certain to return to the Championship next term.

Once on Celtic’s books, McGinn had a previous spell in English football with Brentford during the 2011-12 campaign, but is yet to make an appearance in England’s second tier.
