Swansea striker Oliver McBurnie says he is flattered by reported interest from Sheffield United but he is not actively seeking a move. The Blades are looking to add some extra firepower to their squad ahead of their first season back in the Premier League and they have reportedly had a £15million rejected by Swansea for Scotland international McBurnie.

It remains to be seen whether the Blades will make an improved offer for McBurnie, who scored 24 goals in 44 games across all competitions for Swansea last season, but the 24-year-old is flattered to be attracting interest from Chris Wilder’s side. “It’s flattering because it means you’re doing something right, getting attention from clubs like that,” McBurnie told Wales Online. McBurnie also confirmed he is not actively seeking a move to Bramall Lane and he would be happy to remain with Swansea if the two clubs fail to agree on a transfer fee.
“It’s out of my hands really, that’s the club’s decision,” the forward added. “Those two (clubs) will speak about that, it’s for people way above my pay grade to talk about, I just get on with the football, it is what it is. “It’s not my decision, it’s for people way above me to decide. I’ll get on with the football, I’m more than happy to do that and let them sort it out between themselves.”
