Two days ago, Tipsbladet explained that Sheffield United and Luton Town set their sights on Lyngby goalkeeper Mads Kikkenborg.

The Blades have conceded 41 goals from 15 games and currently have the worst defensive record in the league. This has also resulted in them sitting at the bottom of the table and are joined by Luton in the relegation zone.

Another report from Tipsbladet state Sheffield United and Luton have an interest in the 24-year-old, to the point where it is ‘so concrete that it points in the direction that the two clubs will bid for him in January’.

Last season, he played a key role in helping the Danish club avoid getting relegated and has been performing on a higher level this season. This has seen him draw the attention of Sheffield United and Luton, and these two clubs are expected to table offers in January.

Former Rangers goalkeeper Jesper Christiansen has urged the Dane to accept a move to the Premier League, if an opportunity is presented to him next month.

“If he gets the opportunity to come to a Championship or Premier League club, then I would jump on the next plane. The chance to get into these clubs is not hanging on the trees,” he told Tipsbladet.

“I think he fits in well in England. In the past, they had to have big and strong goalkeepers, and that has changed over the years, so they have to get better with their feet. But I still think they have a weakness for big strong goalkeepers and that is Mads.”

Tipsbladet add Christiansen predicts the Sheffield United and Luton target would have to settle for a place on the bench for a year or two before starting to enjoy regular minutes, if he were to move to England.

Kikkenborg, who has a contract until 2026, has kept three clean sheets and conceded 32 goals from 19 games this season.
