The Blades believe he has a bright long-term future at the club but are open to the idea of him getting more senior minutes in the EFL this season.

Sunderland are in the market for another forward, having still not replaced Charlie Wyke after he left to join Wigan Athletic at the end of the campaign.

Jebbison would bolster the ranks and is weighing up his options as he spends some time on Wearside.

Competition for his signature is understood to be significant.
