Blades chief confirms Stoke bid for Beattie

Sheffield United chairman Kevin McCabe has confirmed an approach has been made by Stoke City for James Beattie but insists no deal has been done.

McCabe echoed manager Kevin Blackwell who earlier revealed there had been an enquiry by the Premier League club but he also added that a replacement had been lined up should Beattie move to the Potteries.

Stoke's interest in the 30-year-old became apparent yesterday with the Potters reported to have made a bid of £2.5million for Beattie who moved to Bramall Lane for £4million in August 2007.

However, McCabe insists there has been no agreement.

He told the club's official website: "We've had an approach, we are talking to the club but no deal has been done.

"If the deal goes through we have a replacement all lined up but we can't say who at the moment."

Beattie is the leading scorer at Bramall Lane with 12 goals and he is a vital component of the team's push for promotion to the Premier League.

The Blades are currently sixth in the Championship and, should Beattie leave, it would be vital they replace him with a similarly prolific scorer as his fellow strikers - Billy Sharp, Danny Webber and Darius Henderson - have just eight goals between them this season although injury and suspension have hampered Henderson's involvement following his summer move from Watford.

McCabe, who spearheaded the club's legal fight over the Carlos Tevez affair, also called for everyone to pull together, citing the success Mick McCarthy is now enjoying at table-topping Wolves.

"If a deal is done it will be for the right reason," he continued. "The way the transfer system is - with regard to the windows - we have got to be organised.

"We are in the window and here is a potential chance to take the club forward.

"Why all the doom and gloom? Look at what we have here at Sheffield United. We've got to be together, we are one of the best-supported clubs in the Championship, we've got a fantastic stadium and squad of players. My message is to tell everyone to calm down.

"When we started 2008 at Wolves their fans were calling for Mick McCarthy's head - when we finished the year against them, they are top of the league.

"It is about steadily building and adapting a team and keeping faith with how we are doing things."
