Sheffield Utd’s Slew Makes Move To Blackburn

Sheffield Utd striker Jordan Slew has completed a £1m plus move to Premier League side Blackburn Rovers.

Slew was given permission to speak to Rovers late on Wednesday night but there was some doubt that the deal had been completed prior to the 11pm transfer window deadline.

However the Premier League and Football League have now both given the deal the green light. The Blades will receive an initial £1m with additional payments dependent on the youngsters success at Ewood Park.

Slew, who came through the club’s youth ranks, scored 3 goals in 9 starts for Sheffield Utd. He was also a key player in the Club’s march to the FA Youth Cup final last term.

The young forward was the subject of much transfer speculation towards the back end of last season with the Blades rejecting a £500,000 offer from Fulham in May.

He then penned a new two-year deal at Bramall Lane in July and question marks over his future looked to be resolved. However with the Blades under pressure to reduce the wage bill, Blackburn’s last minute bid proved too good to turn down.

“It’s disappointing to see a Jordan leave the club,” said Academy Manager John Pemberton.

“He was outstanding for me in last season’s FA Youth Cup and has done well when he’s played in the first team.”

Slew’s next challenge will be to earn a place in Rovers starting line-up – with Yakubu, David Goodwillie, David Hoilett and Jason Roberts all vying for a place in Steve Kean’s team.
