Newcastle United are in the market for another forward and have been strongly linked with Sheffield United front man Che Adams. The 20 year-old takes after Jamie Vardy and Sam Clucas in being a former non-league player who is taking the Football League by storm. Adams scored 11 goals in 36 League One matches for The Blades last season and has attracted a lot of attention in the process.
Adams has been the subject of two bids this summer, both of which were rejected. Huddersfield Town had a £700,000 offer turned down before Birmingham City raised the price to £1,000,000 which was also rejected. It is reported that Newcastle United are also now interested in signing the young forward who came through non-league football with St Andrews F.C. and Oadby Town F.C. before joining Sheffield United in 2014.
