In an exclusive interview with Football FanCast, former Hull City striker Dean Windass has questioned Glasgow Rangers’ interest in Sheffield United midfielder John Lundstram.
The £7m-rated 26-year-old, who has previously been described as a “real menace” by Billy Sharp, has provided eight goals and eight assists in 100 appearances across all competitions for the Blades, via Transfermarkt.
Under Blades boss Chris Wilder, Lundstram has come on leaps and bounds and established himself as one of the first-choice starters in the midfield at Bramall Lane.
However, recent reports revealed that his representatives have rejected a final contract offer from the south Yorkshire outfit and Wilder seems to be resigned to losing him in the January transfer window.
Rangers manager Steven Gerrard is reportedly keen to bring the defensive-minded midfielder to Ibrox as he bids to stop Celtic from winning ten in a row.
But Windass suggests he isn’t ready for such a step and he instead should have decided to stay at Bramall Lane.
He told Football FanCast’s James Beavis:
“That’s not for me. I don’t get it. I don’t get it at all.
“I’m not being rude, people probably said I was a bad player, it’s just my opinion.
“But I don’t get that. I don’t understand why he’s not staying, maybe he thinks he’s better than Sheffield United.
“Does he want more money? Maybe they just think he’s only worth so much.”
Gerrard currently has plenty of options in the midfield at Ibrox, including Scott Arfield, Joe Aribo, Steven Davis, Glen Kamara and Bongani Zungu, but a player of Lundstram’s calibre could prove to be a tempting option, as Kamara has previously been subject to transfer interest from Leeds United.
