Sheffield United haven’t received any bids for Oliver Burke, manager Paul Heckingbottom has confirmed.

Tony Mowbray poured cold water on links with Burke this month, the attacker having been a target on deadline day in August.

Time and cost were against Rovers then and despite links resurfacing this month, Mowbray played those down at his press conference.

He said: "I'm not sure where that came from. It hasn't come from us."

The Lancashire Telegraph had been told that talks had taken place over the 24-year-old moving to Ewood Park this month, with a loan move the most likely, despite Mowbray stating there was nothing to report at this stage.

Burke hasn’t played for the Blades since August, but was back on the bench for the win at Fulham last month.

The Blades haven’t played since, but Scotland international Burke could be primed for a rare outing when they return to action in the FA Cup against Wolverhampton Wanderers on Sunday.

“Not that I am aware, no,” Heckingbottom said of any bids for Burke.

Of interest in the 24-year-old, the Blades boss added: “We have had conversations about him and there is an interest in him we are assessing it day by day and week by week we need to make sure we have players back and it could be towards the end of the window before things happen.

“It depends, the problem at the minute is that we can't leave ourselves short with Covid and injuries, we have more out this week and that would be the over-riding factor.”
