Riise in Blades Return
Updated Monday, 30th January 2012
Sheffield United could be on the verge of signing Fulham winger Bjorn Helge Riise on loan until the remainder of the season.
He moved to Championship club Portsmouth in a two month loan spell earlier in this season and played twice in defeats to Peterborough United (2-3) and Leeds United (0-1). With the exception of a run out in the Europa League in pre-season with Fulham he has seen little first team action.
Brother of ex-Liverpool full-back Jorn Arne Riise he was allegedly seen at Bramall Lane last week by Blades-Mad user MadBlade - either his name suggests its a plausible hoax or their is truth in the Norwegian coming to Bramall Lane. We would certainly hope so as Danny Wilson looks to propel United into the Championship at the first time of asking.
