Crewe keen on Aneke deal

Crewe boss Steve Davis admits he would love to sign Arsenal loanee Chuks Aneke on a permanent basis at the end of the season.

The young attacker, who is out of contract in the summer, has scored 10 times this season in his second spell on loan at Gresty Road.

Signing Chuks on a permanent basis is something I've thought about but it is maybe a bit early for him to decide what he is going to do in the summer. His agent was very keen for him to be here and everyone can see the improvement he has made when making that step up from Under-21 football.

We won't be able to compete with a lot of clubs financially but Chuks has to fit into a style of football, if I was going to give him any advice it would be that the team he plays in is very important to him because of the style of player he is.

Harry Maguire's first-half brace helped give new Sheffield United manager Nigel Clough a dream start.

The 20-year-old defender twice headed home unmarked in the opening half-hour at Bramall Lane before Ryan Flynn sealed the three points.

Alex substitute Max Clayton grabbed a late consolation as his side slipped into the relegation zone, below the Blades on goal difference.
