Sportsmail revealed on Friday that the Blades boss is in severance talks after long-running tensions with the Bramall Lane board finally exploded.

The goalkeeper remained with Manchester United this season and has since been given his chance to claim the No 1 spot with David de Gea in Spain following the birth of his daughter.
The shot-stopper had a close relationship with Wilder during his time at the Blades and paid tribute to all he had done for his career.
‘Thank you for everything you did for me!! Don’t ever underestimate what you did for Sheffield United!’ Henderson wrote on Instagram.

‘Can’t wait to see the statue at the lane! Not only a great manager but a great person. Best of luck for the future.’
Earlier this month, Sportsmail reported Wilder’s departure in the summer was inevitable after rows with the club’s owners over recruitment and the state of the training ground.
The manager led the club from League One to the Premier League and almost into Europe before the lockdown derailed the Blades’ 2019-2020 campaign.
But after a ninth-placed finish last season, Sheffield United are rock bottom of the table and 12 points adrift.
Wilder did not take training on Friday ahead of Sunday’s game at Leicester and his scheduled Friday press conference was cancelled.
