Former Sheffield United striker Steve Kabba has been linked with a summer move to the blue and white half of Sheffield after being told he can leave Watford.

The 26-year-old only made the move to Vicarage Road in the January transfer window after being deemed surplus to requirements by Bramall Lane boss Neil Warnock – and Kabba has been told he can leave the Hornets just months after joining.

Kabba, who was a key part of the Blades’ promotion team last season, has seen just three starts for Aidy Boothroyd’s men since making the switch, and still lives in Sheffield.

And it’s thought Brian Laws is a big fan of the forward, who has vast experience at Championship level already with the Blades and Crystal Palace.

Kabba was recruited to the Premiership outfit for a sum of £500,000 – with many Blades fans believing Watford had got the better deal for the hitman – and it’s thought a similar sum could prize him away from the Premiership club.

And Laws is set to bolster his squad for a promotion push next season, with a sum of cash from the £2.5m sale of Madjid Bougherra to spend in the summer.
