Matt Cash: Sheffield United set to see £10m bid rejected by Nottingham Forest

Sheffield United are preparing to make an offer for Nottingham Forest defender Matt Cash – said to be around £10m – and it is expected to be rejected.

The Championship club, who just missed out on a play-off place last season, are hoping to secure closer to £15m for the impressive right-back.

A Blades player could also be used in the deal to help it get over the line.

The 22-year-old was a target for Premier League clubs in January including West Ham, who bid £12m plus add-ons, Southampton and AC Milan – but none could agree a deal with Forest.

Cash stayed and finished the season with 42 appearances and three goals as Forest finished seventh and missed out on the play-offs on goal difference.

Cash, who can also play on the right-hand side of midfield or right wing, has scored 16 goals in 141 appearances since breaking through from the Forest academy, and amid a spell on loan at Dagenham & Redbridge.
