The combative midfielder impressed last season, particularly during The Blades' epic FA Cup clashes with Arsenal.
Montgomery, 23, now believes the time is right to quit Bramall Lane and with his contract expiring this month he is now looking at his options.
Burnley, Leeds and Stoke are three of the clubs known to be interested and Montgomery's agent Lee Payne confirmed talks had been held.
"We are aware of the interest from those three clubs," Payne told skysports.com.
"There is a lot of interested clubs.
"Neil Warnock is willing to let Nick leave, but not for free and so some sort of fee will be involved."
Robert Kozluk has also been linked with Burnley and The Clarets are understood to be looking to seal a double swoop on the South Yorkshire club.
