Doncaster have approached local neighbours Sheffield United over the possibility of signing striker Billy Sharp.

Sharp, who re-joined the Blades from Scunthorpe two years ago, has fallen down the pecking order at Bramall Lane following Ched Evans' arrival from Manchester City and boss Kevin Blackwell has circulated his name to other clubs.

"After we got word about him, we made an inquiry, as you do, to see what the situation was with him," O'Driscoll told the Star. "We contacted Sheffield United, asked some questions about the length of his contract, the wages he's on, whatever transfer fee they might want or if they were wanting to loan him out."

He added: "People mention a player like that and we're probably talking millions of pounds and I don't know where we are going to get that sort of money. We are sort of scrabbling around right now."
