Opinion: Wolves should test Sheffield United’s resolve for this midfield ace

Wolves are having a fine first season back in the top flight under Nuno Santo.

Some fine performances and some excellent work in the summer transfer window has set up the Molineux club to be a force for the considerable future it would seem, and Santo is a man who deserves a lot of credit for that.

The January window passed for Wolves without little to shout home about and there wasn’t really much needed for the club in terms of players for the first XI.

However, we here in the Tavern think a few summer additions wouldn’t go amiss at Molineux, and one man we feel the club should be testing the water for is Sheffield United midfielder John Fleck.

The Scottish star has been instrumental for United for the last few seasons now, and his growing confidence at Championship level appears to have him all set up do it in the top flight if the chance comes along either with the Blades or another club.

But Wolves would be a good fit for Fleck, with the club having a heavy reliance on Ruben Neves in the middle.

Fleck is someone who can come in and control games for Wolves, putting his foot on the ball and setting the tempo for games. He does still possess that fire in his belly though to put his foot in, do the dirty work, and make sure he bosses the middle of the park.

Sheffield United won’t want to lose him, but every player has his price, and he’d be a shrewd addition at Molineux.
