Everton have had an offer turned down by Sheffield United for 18-year-old striker Daniel Jebbison, but the Toffees aren’t the only Premier League club interested in the young Canadian.
Jebbison was born and raised in Ontario but his family relocated to England in 2017 when his mother took a new job and he joined Sheffield United’s youth ranks the following year.
The teenager played twice during a loan at National League North club Chorley midway through last season but later returned to his parent club and played four times for the Blades in the Premier League in May alone. He even scored his first senior goal in a 1-0 win over Everton.
Everton clearly took note of Jebbison because 90min can reveal that the Toffees have submitted a bid that has been turned down by Sheffield United. Premier League rivals Aston Villa are also keen on trying to strike a permanent deal for him, sensing his enormous potential.
Below the Premier League, Championship side Hull have made a loan offer for Jebbison, who has only featured for Sheffield United in the EFL Cup so far this season, as have League One duo Sunderland and Burton.
Sheffield United would consider a permanent sale as they look to raise funds to invest in the squad for new manager Slavisa Jokanovic. So far, a loan for Ben Davies from Liverpool is the only new arrival since relegation from the Premier League at the end of last season.
The Blades have struggled since returning to the Championship, failing to win any of their opening four games, and sit in 23rd place only one point above the bottom of the table.
A significant sum of money has just been raised by the sale of Aaron Ramsdale to Arsenal at the end of last week for an initial £24m, plus up to £6m more in add-ons.
