Quina move collapses as fans call for Blades boycott

Domingos Quina's proposed deadline day move on loan to Sheffield United collapsed at the eleventh hour.

The Academy star was poised to join the Blades on a season-long loan, but the deal myteriously fell through late in the afternoon on transfer deadline day.

Although it is unknow exactly why the move fell through, talks had advanced to the point where the Portuguese youngster had been booked in for a medical with the Championship side - one that was never to proceed.

One suggestion for the breakdown in talks, hinted at by the Sheffield Star, referred to a guarantee of first team football. "Manager Chris Wilder has previously stated that he will not process any agreement which guarantees a player first team football at Bramall Lane," they wrote.

Meanwhile, a KUMB Poll staged on deadline day resulted in 82 per cent of voters imploring West Ham not to do business with Sheffield, as a result of the Carlos Tevez fiasco that saw the Blades extort in excess of 30million from West Ham a decade ago.

Just 13 per cent of those polled argued that it was time to let bygones be bygones. Either way, Quina remains a West Ham player this morning.
