Sheffield United fans on Twitter are split about the potential return of Phil Jagielka after it was confirmed that the veteran centre-half would be leaving Everton at the end of this season.
The Blades have been linked with their former player already this window, and with him now being available on a free, fans are inevitably discussing their opinions on the potential move.
The defender will be turning 37 this summer, so understandably supporters of the Yorkshire club had concerns about his age and whether or not he will be able to keep up in the Premier League next season.
Certain fans have been adamant that they don’t want the former England international at Bramall Lane next season, while others have welcomed his return with open arms.
Jagielka was a fantastic servant for the Blades in the 2000s, making almost 250 appearances for the club.
Nothing captures the unpredictability of the Championship better than the video below…
With United set to return to the Premier League next season they need a certain amount of experience in the squad, but the fanbase can’t seem to agree on whether Jagielka should return.
Here’s what the Bramall Lane faithful have been saying on Twitter…

Would provide invaluable experience in the dressing room to a lot of our lads

Only as cover. Nowhere near as good as our current back 3 now. No room for sentiment this season. A few years ago maybe but not now.

As part of the coaching staff maybe, and back up in an emergency.

I think stearman adds are experience plus how much wages will he want. On the flip side I’d love him back. Legend and could go into a coaching role in a few years too
