Sheffield United are close to signing Aston Villa forward Archer, according to our sister publication Yorkshire Live. He made an impression during a loan stint with Middlesbrough last season and would make for an exciting addition in Paul Heckingbottom’s squad.
Villa turned down an initial offer of PS10 million for Archer two weeks ago but are willing to sell at a compromise fee with buy-back clauses included. He will go under medical tests today as the first stage.
Paul Heckingbottom has long sought an ideal goalscorer in Archer. A member of England Under-21s squad that won this year’s European Championship, Archer is an expert finisher who could become an asset.
He is an astute poacher who looks for pockets of space behind or in front of the defence, using brilliant runs off the ball that force opponents’ defenders into overcommitting and leaving themselves vulnerable – killing them off with one dart across their backline.
Archer appears close to finalising his move from Villa to Sheffield United through an intricate deal, according to Alan Nixon’s Patreon report. According to this account, Sheffield United are willing to shell out PS18 million for him with an option included that will allow them to pick him back up should Villa be relegated from Premier League during their first year back as they can sell him back at a profit should Villa be relegated at any point during their return season – his initial medical is scheduled for today.
Aston Villa and Sheffield United have agreed on the sale of Cameron Archer, 21. Archer scored 11 goals during his loan stint with Middlesbrough during the latter part of last season and made regular appearances for England Under-21 squad, scoring two times at this summer’s European Championships. The buy-back clause will allow Aston Villa a way back.
Archie’s arrival would be a blow for Leeds United, who were linked with him previously. They had hoped to add another striker this summer after Iliman Ndiaye left for Marseille while Chuba Akpom and Malik Tillman both signed Eredivisie deals this year.
However, Villa academy graduate Jack Grealish appears eager to play in the Premier League this season – potentially ruling out both Leeds and Middlesbrough who had been heavily linked with him as potential destinations.
Paul Heckingbottom made 21-year-old Archer his primary target following Iliman Ndiaye’s departure for Marseille. Archer featured as part of England Under-21 team at Euro 2016 this summer and scored 11 times while on loan to Middlesbrough last season – nearly making play-offs!
He currently earns PS20k per week at Villa Park but this could increase significantly should he secure regular first-team football elsewhere; his move to Sheffield United may be one step in that direction yallashoot.

Alan Nixon reported on his Patreon page that Sheffield United and Archer have come to an agreement for a complex transfer deal, with Archer moving to Bramall Lane for a small profit and buy-back clause, expected to take place this week. Archer will add depth and scoring ability to an attack which has scored just five goals in three Premier League matches so far this season.
Archer will provide Sheffield United with much-needed goals this season as they attempt to fill the void left by last season’s top scorer Iliman Ndiaye’s move to Marseille for EUR17m this summer.
Young striker possesses an eye for space and is unafraid of moving into these areas to create opportunities. Additionally, he can quickly recognise when defensive structures are out of position and use body feinting techniques to draw out a reaction before threading passes into those open areas.
Alan Nixon reported on his Patreon page that Sheffield United and Aston Villa are working out an intricate deal for Archer to join Sheffield United for around PS18 million, though there may be an option for Villa to re-sign the youngster at a higher price should they relegated this season.
