Sheffield United are interested in signing Celtic's Thomas Gravesen.Sheffield United boss Bryan Robson has confirmed his interest in signing Celtic's Thomas Gravesen.
Robson is a big admirer of the former Everton midfielder and is keen to bring him to Bramall Lane.
Gravesen has failed to live up to expectations at Celtic since arriving from Real Madrid last August and struggled to hold down a place in Gordon Strachan's side last season.
Robson revealed he is in talks with Celtic and he is hoping to persuade Gravesen to make the move to the Championship.
"I have an interest in Thomas Gravesen and would like to bring him to Sheffield United," said Robson.
"We are in discussions with Celtic over the issue and, hopefully, we can sort out some kind of agreement with them.
"I'm not sure if I can persuade Thomas to come here but I'd like to have the chance to speak to him."
Meanwhile, Celtic could make a move for Liverpool youngster Adam Hammill.
Liverpool are believed to be ready to let the 19-year-old go out on loan for another season and Celtic are thought to have expressed an interest in bringing the winger to Parkhead.
Hammill is aware of Celtic's interest and he is excited at the prospect of joining the Scottish giants.
"My agent has been in touch with Celtic and I know about the interest," Hammill told The Sun.
"They are a very big club and it is exciting for me personally that there is talk of Celtic which proves I did really well in Scotland."
