Sheffield Utd agree £18m deal for Aston Villa forward Archer

Sheffield United have agreed a fee with Aston Villa for striker Cameron Archer.

There are still some final elements of the deal to conclude - but he is close to signing for the Blades.

One source has told Sky Sports News the fee is worth £18m.

Luton were also understood to have been trying for a loan move but Villa favoured a permanent deal.

A new striker has been high on Blades boss Paul Heckingbottom's list since Iliman Ndiaye departed for Marseille earlier this month.

They wanted Chuba Akpom and Malik Tillman but both have since signed for Eredivisie clubs - Akpom has gone to Ajax, while Tillman was snapped up by PSV.
