Sheffield United have allegedly launched enquiries for Manchester United pair Jesse Lingard and Brandon Williams.

Blades manager Chris Wilder is looking to bolster his ranks for the second half of the season as his side look to execute a great escape.

As it stands, the Blades are on course to record the lowest points tally in PL history.

The record is currently held by Derby County from the 2007/08 term when the Rams picked up just 11 points.

They arelooking to bring at least two new players through the door at the Bramall Lane outfit but are working with limited funds.

According to Eurosport, the club have contacted the Old Trafford outfit at the possibility of taking both Willians and Lingard on loan.

Both have a point to prove after a lack of minutes this campaign as they look to force their way back into the Norweigan boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s plans.

The board decided to trigger a one-year extension in Jesse’s contract last December in order to protect the academy graduate’s value.

There had been interest from both Milan sides but the England international wants to stay at United and fight for his place.

Meanwhile, Brandon has been the subject of interest from both Bayer Leverkusen and Southampton.

Ole blocked the young left-back from departing in the summer transfer window but the arrival of Alex Telles means William’s involvement has been limited.

Sheffield United are yet to receive assurances from the Red Devils hierarchy that either star will be available this month.
