Sheffield United join Tottenham in pursuit of Wigan youngster Kyle Joseph

According to the Mirror, Tottenham Hotspur have been joined by fellow Premier League outfit Sheffield United in the race to sign Wigan Athletic teenager Kyle Joseph.

A product of the Wigan youth academy, Joseph has been with the club since 2004. Having made eight appearances for the club’s U-18 outfit, the 19-year-old made his first-team debut in October last year.

Since then, Joseph has gone on to feature 13 appearances for the Latics in all competitions, finding the back of the net on four occasions. (h/t Transfermarkt)

A centre-forward by trade, the Scottish ace will be out of contract with Wigan Athletic at the end of the season. This has led to an interest in him from Tottenham Hotspur. Along with us, Scottish giants Celtic and Rangers were also said to be interested in the striker. Now, Sheffield United, too, have entered the race to sign the teenager. (h/t Mirror)

Wigan Athletic are understood to have made a new contract offer for their prospect. But should he refuse to sign and leave on a Bosman transfer at the end of the season, they will be entitled to a compensation fee. Although, the Latics are yet to receive any formal approach for the Scotsman.

Tottenham brought in Alfie Devine from Wigan last summer and had made an attempt to sign Joseph as well. However, a deal had failed to materialise. (h/t The Scotsman)
