Transfer news: Sheffield United close to agreeing £10million deal for Bournemouth's Lys Mousset

Sheffield United are close to agreeing a £10million deal for Bournemouth's French striker Lys Mousset.

Talks accelerated after the Bramall Lane club were rebuffed in their £15m bid for Swansea City's Ollie McBurnie.

The 23-year-old Mousset, a France U21 international, joined Bournemouth from Le Havre in 2016 for £5.7million and has made 71 appearances for the first team, predominantly from the bench, scoring five goals.
