Well the last few days have been interesting following a tweet by Billy Sharp saying that he’d agreed a season long loan spell with ‘mate’ James Beattie.

The seeming joke certainly went viral and took it’s fair share of column inches in the media following the photo that accompanied the tweet.

‘Delighted 2 announce season long loan 2 @asfcofficial and to work 4 my mate @1jamesbeattie deal done by @jlfomnisports.’

It appears the photo was taken in a Las Vegas casino where the old Sheffield United mates bumped into each other whilst on holiday.

The initial reaction from Rob Heys was to say he ‘didn’t want a day off anyway’ as he continually rubbished claims that there had been contact between ourselves and Southampton over the striker on his personal Twitter page.

Didn’t stop people getting slightly excited though did it!
