Sheffield United defender Chris Basham is attracting interest from Burnley and Newcastle United.

The 31-year-old has been outstanding this season making 40 appearances as Chris Wilder’s side push for an unlikely European place on their return to the top flight.

However, he has one year left on contract and that has alerted Premier League rivals Burnley and Newcastle who are keen to bolster their squads with a dependable, proven top flight defender.
