Sheffield United are considering a move to bring Chris Wilder back to Bramall Lane after their winless run extended to five games in the late defeat against Tottenham.

Mail Sport understands that Paul Heckingbottom’s position is in serious jeopardy, with United 17th in the table following four defeats and a solitary point against Everton prior to the international break.

Sources say Wilder has already been sounded out about a return to the club, where he achieved great success between 2016 and 2021. In that time, he led them out of League One before securing promotion to the Premier League in 2019.

He left two years later with United at the bottom of the division with only 14 points from 28 games. Despite those difficulties he remains popular with the fans and senior figures at the club.

The 55-year-old, who amassed more than 100 games for Sheffield United in two spells as a player, has been out of work since leaving Watford at the conclusion of his short-term contract in the summer.
