Blackman Snubs Palace Move

According to the Daily Mail, Sheffield United accepted a £1,200.000 bid submitted by Crystal Palace but the striker rejected - opting to remain at Bramall Lane as they push for promotion from League One.

The Eagles had seen an initial bid of £700,000 turned down by the Blades but following the £15,000,000 sale of Wilfred Zaha to Manchester United returned with a much improved offer.
