Sky Sports understands Sheffield United are weighing up a move for Walsall ace Jamie Paterson.

The 21-year-old has impressed for Walsall this season and his performances have not gone unnoticed.

Paterson, who has come through the ranks at Walsall, has netted seven goals this season and he is regarded as one of the best young players outside the top two leagues.

Sheffield United have been keeping tabs on Paterson and they could now make a move for the versatile attacker as they look to bolster their squad.

Walsall are loath to lose Paterson, but they could face a battle to keep hold of him should Sheffield United step up their interest in the player.
