Following days of rumours and counter-rumours, Paul Ifill is reported to be on the verge of signing for Sheffield United today in a deal worth around £800,000.

Reports in today's Mirror newspaper and on Sky Sports News suggest that only the formalities of a medical need to be completed before the move is rubber stamped.

Ifill, who made his debut for The Lions back in 1998, may be the first of two Millwall players to join The Blades this weekend as Neil Warnock looks to strengthen his squad. Defender Darren Ward is also rumoured to be on the verge of joining United.
