Leeds United manager Uwe Rosler has confirmed the club have received interest in striker Billy Sharp.

Sharp scored just five goals in 33 Championship starts for the Whites last term after joining the club from Southampton during the summer of 2014.

Sky Sports have reported that Sheffield United have agreed a £500,000 fee with Leeds for the signing of Sharp, with the Blades keen to reunite him with former boss Nigel Adkins.

Speaking on the deal, Leeds boss Rosler said according to The Yorkshire Evening Post: "There is some interest there. Not only from the clubs who are mentioned but also from other clubs.

"There's interest in one or two players but they're Leeds United players and they're showing a great attitude. I'm happy with every player I have in my squad.

"He [Sharp] has a lot of experience. He's a proven goalscorer and we have a number of strikers.

"He's under contract with us. When other clubs are interested in players they have to talk to [owner Massimo] Cellino.

"Then we'll see if it's possible or not possible to keep them or let them go. That's where we are."

Despite making four new additions in the summer transfer window ahead of renewed attempts to win promotion back to the Premier League, Leeds have suffered a blow with the news that Luke Murphy will miss the start of the campaign after undergoing surgery.

The former Crewe Alexandra youngster has gone under the knife to correct a knee problem and will miss the whole of Leeds' preseason schedule and the beginning of the campaign.

But Rosler says the Elland Road club will not make a knee-jerk reaction in the transfer window to cover for the loss of the 25-year-old.

"We are not panicking," he told Sky Sports. "We are still assessing our players.

Everyone has impressing me in training and I've seen a lot of promising signs. We will then make the right decision about who we bring in – it must be the right player at the right price."
