McGovern to Sheffield United?

McGovern to Sheffield United?

Jon-Paul McGovern has been linked to join former Town boss Danny Wilson at Sheffield United.

With the rumour mill in full flow, it's believed that McGovern in high on Wilson's wish list.

McGovern, 29, featured more than any other player during the 2009/10 Play-Off season. However, he suffered a significant dip in form during the following campaign.

The former Celtic youth player spent time at Bramall Lane during a loan spell in 2003 but later linked up with Sheffield Wednesday where he won the 3rd tier Play-Off Final before joining Milton Keynes Dons.

McGovern joined Town in 2007 and has made over 150 league appearances for the club.

Online reports suggest that Wilson is willing to fork out £400,000 for McGovern's services. I'd take that!
