Sheffield United will listen to offers for Rangers target John Lundstram during the January window, but manager Chris Wilder says he is yet to receive any.
Speaking earlier this week, as reported by Yorkshire Live, Wilder confirmed that the club held a recruitment meeting recently and he was quizzed on the future of his midfielder.
On Lundstram’s immediate future, Wilder answered more broadly, saying: “Nothing in any of the players who are in our 25-man squad, nothing at all.”
Lundstram has previously rejected a contract offer from the Premier League side and he looks poised to leave the club for free during the summer.
Sheffield United might be tempted to cash in during the January window for a smaller fee to avoid losing him for nothing.
He was dropped from the Sheffield United squad that lost to Man United on Thursday, with no reports of an injury.
Rangers were among the teams to be linked with Lundstram previously, while the likes of West Ham and Burnley were also keen, according to The Athletic.
A deal too good to miss out on
Previous reports have suggested that Rangers would be keen to do a ‘cut-price’ deal, but it remains to be seen what kind of fee that may turn out to be.
As per Transfermarkt, Lundstram is currently valued at £7.2million, but with his contract situation, that fee will only continue to drop.
Back in March, he was valued as high as £9million, so we could expect to see that valuation decrease even further.
If Rangers could secure the signing of Lundstram, either on a pre-contract agreement or a small fee in January, they would have a bargain deal on their hands.
The player scored five times and registered three assists in the Premier League last season, helping the Blades to a famous ninth-place finish.
