Sheffield United: Boss on transfer budget as targets start to filter

Lowe, 25, impressed for Steve Cooper’s side after being loaned out to City Ground in August. After recovering unexpectedly from injury, he appeared as a substitute in their win over Huddersfield Town in yesterday’s play-off final at Wembley; a result that ended the 23-year exile of the former European champions from top-level competition.

Although sources in the East Midlands admitted last night that Cooper would like to sign Lowe permanently, they also reported that Forest expect United to offer to extend Lowe’s terms in order to stave off their interest – inviting him possibly to stay in South Yorkshire for at least another four seasons. Lowe’s current arrangement is set to expire in two summers, having joined them from Derby County halfway through United’s two-year stay in the PL under Paul Heckingbottom’s predecessor Chris Wilder.

Signed as part of the deal which also delivered Jayden Bogle to United, Lowe initially struggled to find opportunities after leaving Pride Park. However, he was one of Forest’s most influential performers after being lured there by their ex-manager Chris Hughton. A group of statisticians rated him the third most effective player in England’s second tier before succumbing to a groin complaint four weeks ago.

Lowe was ineligible for selection when Forest beat United in the play-off semi-final, advancing via a penalty shootout after the aggregate scoreline remained tied at 3-3 over two legs.
