Sheffield United manager Chris Wilder is also looking to complete the £11m double signing of Derby County full-backs Jayden Bogle and Max Lowe.

Bogle, 20, has also had interest from West Ham and Fulham during the summer. 

Talks are ongoing with both players left out of Derby’s squad that faced Barrow in the Carabao Cup on Saturday.

Burke and Robinson are currently away on international duty and will finalise their transfers once they return.
