Looks like Sheffield United are looking to bolster their already impressive defence.
Reports from Football Insider suggest that the Blades have turned their attention to former Everton, Manchester City, Sunderland and Blackburn Rovers midfielder Jack Rodwell.
However, the report notes that Chris Wilder is hoping to play him more as a centre-back rather than in midfield.
The Sheffield Star asked fans what they thought of the news, and it’s fair to say that the reaction was mixed amongst the Bramall Lane faithful.
Some seemed to think that he’s someone that they should stay away from, whilst others went for a rather bizarre approach.
You could put this down as ‘blind faith’ as it were, but there were a couple of supporters who are putting a lot of faith in Wilder on this matter, believing that so long as he is OK with the deal, then it’s OK with them.

Here’s the best of the reaction.
After watching the Sunderland documentary it’s a no from me.

If wilder wants him, who are we to argue with him. #wilderisgodpassiton.

If Sir Chris says yes then fair enough.

After seeing what he has done with Lundstram, I’d back CW to turn a a sfubbed out cigarette into a Welsh international football player!

The final tweet might be pushing it a little bit. Even the best managers make some bad choices every now and then. Sir Alex Ferguson signing Eric Djemba-Djemba, a man who appeared just 39 times for United, comes to mind straight away, but I’m sure you can think of some others yourself.
