Sheffield United assistant boss Sam Ellis has confirmed the club are looking to make signings before Tuesday's transfer deadline.

Ellis also confirmed that boss Kevin Blackwell could be set to offload one or two members of his playing staff with Leigh Bromby being linked with a move to Leeds or West Brom.

Ellis said: "We would like to do something and we will keep trying until the deadline. The manager said that even if we decrease the size of the squad we will only bring in quality where we can."

He added: "We are not desperate. There are two or three players out through injury, including Gary Naysmith, but Glen Little should be fit for consideration in two week's time."

On the matter of Bromby's departure, Ellis added: "Leigh is still here, he's a good pro but he's at the stage in his career where he would rather be playing games than sat on the bench. There has been interest on him."
