Will Sheffield United earn promotion?
Aston Villa midfielder Hourihane spent the second half of last season on loan at Swansea City in the Championship after struggling to get minutes at Villa Park.
What have these Sheffield United fans had to say?
“Be some signing”
“Great player, hoped we’d have signed him few years before.”
“I’m excited at the prospect of this happening. Such a great player at this level.”
“Hope this is true. Been wanting him for a little while now, especially seen as it seems Villa don’t really want him.”
“Wouldn’t mind that”
The Blades currently have five players on their books who can play as a central midfielder, but bringing in someone like Hourihane who has plenty of Championship experience under his belt would be a smart move, even if it was just a loan deal.
Jokanovic is still yet to sign anyone this summer, so it could be argued that he is rather happy with his team, having appeared to decide against wholesale changes following the Blades’ relegation last term.
That said, it appears that plenty of United fans would nevertheless see Hourihane as a fine addition to the squad.
