Sheffield United are eyeing up a loan swoop for Aston Villa striker Scott Hogan this summer.

According to The Birmingham Mail, Sheffield United are set to make a move for Hogan as they look to strengthen their attacking options.

The report claims that United boss Chris Wilder is a big fan of Hogan and sees an opportunity to snatch him up.

Aston Villa have not made a decision on his future as of yet, as they still consider what to do with their finances this summer.

Villa have a sizeable financial hole to fill and are expected to sell a number of first-team stars to cover it.

The likes of James Chester, Jack Grealish and Albert Adomah have all been linked with moves away.

United, however, are only interested in a loan move for Hogan, who has scored eight goals for Villa since his transfer from Brentford.
