The Star is reporting that Sheffield United will allow Glasgow Rangers target John Lundstram to leave the club in January.
The Gers were linked with a move for the 26-year-old during the summer transfer window, but the midfielder ended up staying at Bramall Lane.
Lundstram was in talks over a new contract at the club, but it appears he has failed to agree terms. With him now into the last year of his deal, the Blades may let him depart in January as they look to at least secure some kind of fee for his services.
Bargain for Gerrard
This could well be a bargain for Steven Gerrard. Lundstram is a player with plenty of experience, and made 34 appearances in all competitions for Sheffield United as they finished in the top half of the Premier League in their debut term back in the top flight. The five goals he managed in the league meant he was the club’s second-top goalscorer in that competition. Billy Sharp even said last season that he has “all the attributes“.
Would you like to sign Lundstram?
He is currently valued at £7.2m (Transfermarkt), which may well be beyond the Ibrox outfit’s financial capabilities. However, in January, he is unlikely to command such a fee given his contract situation. If the Gers could secure his services for a cut-price sum, this could be amongst Gerrard’s best deals since he moved to the 54-time Scottish champions.
