Merseyside rivals Everton and Liverpool have also taken note of Gordon’s progress this season but now Manchester United and Leeds have watched the young defender as they consider potential new recruits.
Though they face relegation to the Championship, Sheffield United have a number of highly promising young players on the fringes of their first team with Gordon one of those most highly rated.
All four of the Premier League admirers are constantly assessing talented prospects such as Gordon with the aim to add depth to their youth ranks and may consider a move in the summer amid an expected re-shaping of the Blades.
Oostende coach Alexander Blessin is among the front runners to succeed Chris Wilder as manager and he has a reputation for working well with young players and on a limited budget.
