Sheffield United transfer latest: Olympiacos eye another Yorkshire raid after making offer for Max Lowe

GREEK Super League champions Olympiacos have made an offer for Sheffield United full-back Max Lowe - following on from their recent completion of a deal to sign Huddersfield Town's Pipa.

Lowe spent last term on loan at Nottingham Forest, with the East Midlanders seeing a bid - understood to be worth around £2m - to sign the 25-year-old on a permanent basis rejected in January.

Forest have maintained their interest in the player, but in a fresh move, the Athens giants have tabled an offer for Lowe.

Olympiacos are owned by Evangelos Marinakis, who is also the majority shareholder at Forest.

Oympiacos recently brought in Pipa for an undisclosed fee from Town, with the Spaniard citing a desire to test himself in the Champions League as being pivotal in his decision to move to Greece.

Speaking about Lowe recently, Blades manager Paul Heckingbottom admitted that there was interest in the player, who moved to the club from Derby County in September 2020.

Heckingbottom said: He added: “He did well at Forest, there’s been no offers. There’s interest, because he did great for them.

"But he’s our player. He did well in this league and it’s more important to get players in before we let them out. There’s no rush.”
