SHEFFIELD United are yet to return with a second bid for Cherries goalkeeper Aaron Ramsdale, the Daily Echo understands.

The Blades saw an offer of around £12million rejected last week, with Cherries feeling it fell well below their valuation for a 22-year-old who has just been named as the club's player of the season after his breakthrough top-flight campaign.

Reports this week have suggested the Yorkshire club are set to return with an improved bid for a player who moved to the south coast from the Blades for around £800,000 back in 2017.

However, no bid has yet been forthcoming.

The Daily Echo also understands Sheffield United inserted a sell-on clause into their sale of Ramsdale to Cherries, meaning they would be due a percentage of whatever transfer fee is received for the goalkeeper.

Discussing the decision to turn down the Blades' offer for Ramsdale, Cherries boss Jason Tindall said: "We didn't think it met our valuation of Aaron.

"I think you want to try and keep as many of your best players as possible and Aaron would be no different.

"Nathan Ake has just gone to Man City and would I have liked to keep Nathan Ake? For sure. But when a club Man City come calling for you, players like that go with your blessing.

"I know Aaron is a Sheffield boy, he's from that way and Sheffield United are in the Premier League."

Ramsdale is due to return for pre-season with Cherries on Monday.
