Sheffield United ‘insert sell-on clause in supper star deal’

The supporters are with this team and will back them despite their current issues with the club. They need to react and seize this week as an inspiring opportunity to continue and achieve the results we know they are still capable of achieving.

That was demonstrated on Wednesday night. It’s time to move on with positivity and unity now.

Gomis has also had some experience playing internationally, having played club football in South Yorkshire’s youth ranks and representing France Under-18s in the past.

In quest of his first-team opportunity, the defender signed a transfer to Toronto, a Canadian team, in early February 2024, ahead of the 2024 Major League Soccer season.

The Sheffield Star reports that Sheffield United has added a sell-on clause to the agreement with Toronto for Gomis, which puts it ahead of any potential future deals.

This would result in the Blades earning money from the potential sale of the center-back, who is expected to make a big splash in Major League Soccer this year.

According to the report, even if a sufficient deal has been established, United has not received an upfront payment for Gomis following his relocation to North America.

It is understood that after the Frenchman has played for Toronto in a predetermined amount of games, the Blades would receive compensation.

The 21-year-old participated in preseason games for John Herdman’s team, but earlier this month, during a friendly match against Los Angeles FC, he sustained a concussion.

Consequently, Gomis was unavailable for selection as Toronto commenced their 2024 MLS schedule with a goalless draw versus FC Cincinnati at TQL Stadium on Sunday.

The defender is expected to be in contention for his competitive debut for the Reds when they travel to New England Revolution on Sunday afternoon in MLS.

Yet to earn any minutes in first-team football, Gomis could be up against world-class talent in the near future, when Toronto face Lionel Messi‘s Inter Miami in July.

Returning to matters in Yorkshire, Sheffield United will look to close the 11-point gap to 17th-placed Nottingham Forest when Arsenal visit Bramall Lane on Monday night.
