Sheffield Utd, Wolves battle for Man Utd's Gibson

Sheffield United and Wolves are chasing Manchester United midfielder Darron Gibson.

The Daily Mail says Gibson, 19, is a highly-rated playmaker who caused controversy by rejecting Northern Ireland to play for the Republic. He has been out injured recently with a broken toe but is coming back to full fitness and Bryan Robson wants him on loan to kick-start United's promotion drive.

However, Mick McCarthy is also keen and hopes his Irish background and Wolves' start to the season will persuade Gibson to go to Molineux.
