According to widespread reports this morning, Sheffield United boss Chris Wilder looks all set to be sacked.
This comes from The Times, The Mail, talkSPORT and the BBC, with it reported Wilder will meet with the club’s hierarchy today to agree the terms of his departure.
The Blades boss will leave with Sheffield United rock bottom of the Premier League on just 14 points.

With our final home game of the season seeing us take on Sheffield United, it will be interesting to see who will be in the opposition dugout come mid-May.
It’s understood that Paul Heckingbottom – their U-23 coach – is now set to take charge for Sheffield United’s trip to Leicester this weekend.
