Cameron Archer is on the brink of a substantial £18 million switch from Aston Villa to Sheffield United, according to talkSPORT.

The emerging talent from Aston Villa is set to sign up with the Blades on a permanent basis. Aston Villa, on the other hand, holds the option to bring him back in the future.

Interestingly, this development follows a similar move involving Aaron Ramsey, who recently made his way to Burnley.

The decision to let Archer go has been approved by Aston Villa as they strive to manage their financial resources more effectively. Yet, the possibility of finding a replacement for the young forward before the transfer window closes remains open.

At just 21 years old, Archer is widely acknowledged as one of England’s most promising attacking prospects.

His notable contribution to England’s under-21 team’s success in the European Championships this summer has further solidified his reputation as a rising star.
