According to The Sun’s Alan Nixon, former Everton centre-back is close to returning to Sheffield United.

The former England international has been training with Burnley in a bid to keep up his fitness as he looks for a new club after leaving Goodison Park last month.
Jagielka moved to Everton from Sheffield for £4 million in 2007, and he successfully established himself as a Toffees legend after scoring 19 goals in 386 appearances and becoming club captain in 2013.
The Blades could do with his experience as they return to the top-flight, and fans will definitely love to see the 36-year-old return.
The veteran centre-back spent seven years with Sheffield’s first-team following his promotion from the youth set-up after two years in the academy, and he went on to make 287 appearances, scoring 22 goals.
Sheffield need to make their squad Premier League-ready ahead of 2019-2020, and adding the Everton legend is way to go.
