Harry Redknapp says Clinton Morrison could be on his way to Sheffield United.Harry Redknapp is still searching for a new striker, but says Clinton Morrison could be on his way to Sheffield United.
The Southampton boss is looking for a new marksman after The Saints cashed-in on lanky hot-shot Peter Crouch by selling him to Liverpool.
Redknapp was eyeing Birmingham's unsettled striker Morrison, but says that asking price would rule him out of a move to St Mary's.
Redknapp says that the Republic of Ireland man could be on his way to Bramall Lane as he believes Neil Warnock is set to make a move.
"It is not easy to find quality strikers," said Redknapp. "Everyone is looking for them.
"We sold Peter Crouch for £7million and if you spend, say, £1million on a replacement then he will be a seventh as good.
"(Morrison) would be one we might look at but I think Sheffield United are preparing a big bid.
"I would not think anyone would pay the £2million reported in some papers but I think Sheffield United have made an offer."
Warnock seems set to lose last season's top scorer Andy Gray to Sunderland, and has already had three bids rejected by Preston for Richard Cresswell.
However, Warnock could now turn to Morrison who is likely to be behind Emile Heskey and new signing Walter Pandiani in Steve Bruce's pecking order.
