Sheffield United boss Danny Wilson believes Brammall Lane is the ideal place for Jordan Slew to further his development - despite the teenager reportedly attracting interest from the Barclays Premier League.

According to, Fulham are keen on the 18-year-old striker following the Blades' relegation to Npower League One. However, Wilson is desperate to keep hold of Slew and now, having offered the youngster a new deal, nervously anticipates a reply.

"We've tabled a fantastic offer to Jordan and his representative," the Wilson told The Star. "And I would be very surprised if it wasn't accepted, desperately disappointed even. I don't mind saying that.


"When I say 'a fantastic offer', I don't just mean money. I mean in terms of the whole package in general - the opportunities he will enjoy here and the positive effects we think that will have on his career."

"Jordan has got to trust us and what we are telling him. He has to trust Sheffield United Football Club, the staff we have here and his teammates.

"I'm hopeful we are moving towards a conclusion and that everything will be sorted out within the next few days, certainly by the end of the week."

Slew was one of United's star turns during academy side's journey to the 2011 FA Youth Cup final. Although they managed to get a 2-2 draw during the first leg, the young Blades were eventually defeated 6-3 on aggregate by their Manchester United counterparts.
