Surman set for Blades

Last updated : 05 June 2009 By Bladesmadeditor
Surman, born in Johannesburg has featured in the England Under 21 set-up. The versatile 22-year-old was Soton's top goalscorer last term, and his talent has attracted interest from Sheffield United.

An undisclosed fee, believed to be around the £1m mark was put forward towards the financially troubled League One outfit earlier in the week. A bid hasn't been accepted or declined by the Saints as of yet.

The healthy one millon pounds sum would sincerely help the Saints who's parent company went into administration earlier this year. Surman would provide much needed ability on the left-wing, a position which has arguably been needed to be filled in the past few years.
