Speaking about whether the right-back could make an impression in Scotland, the 34-year-old stated: “I do.

The Verdict: Baldock saga could drag on for quite some time

Agbonlahor rightly points out the calmness and stability which Baldock has brought to the Sheffield United backline. In 2020/21, he made 34 appearances for the Blades, registering two assists [Transfermarkt].

Showing his defensive instincts, the 28-year-old made 127 recoveries across the campaign [premierleague.com] whilst also averaging 1.9 clearances per match [WhoScored].

Expected to be an important player for the Yorkshiremen next season if he stays, Sheffield United supporters may well be praying that Baldock is priced out of any move north of the border. With Celtic ready to pay £5m to £8m for his services [The Star], this saga seems unlikely to die down any time soon.
