Sheffield United transfer news: Blades eye Sunderland loanee Dion Sanderson, John Lundstram latest
Chris Wilder admits his Sheffield United squad needs a “shake-up” as he prepares for a summer of incomings and outgoings.
Following Saturday’s home defeat to Southampton, it appears Wilder is reluctantly preparing for next season in the Championship – and believes players need to come and go.
In the mix of Wilder’s powerful post-match quotes, the rumour mill has continued to spin, which has linked the Blades to transfer activity on both fronts.
Beginning with potential exits, the Daily Mirror claim Crystal Palace remain in the hunt for John Lundstram.
The 27-year-old is out-of-contract this summer and has no intention of staying at Bramall Lane.
A number of supporters have voiced their frustration at the midfielder’s continued selection in Wilder’s starting XI after a poor showing at the weekend.
However, while his dip in performances impacts United, the same can’t be said for other interested parties.
Burnley and Palace are keen on the Liverpudlian and it is claimed he features highly on the latter’s list of transfer targets.
The Eagles are set for a busy summer with manager Roy Hodgson and several first-team players set to witness their contracts expires.
Meanwhile, Sheffield United’s interest in Wolves defender Dion Sanderson resurfaced over the weekend.
According to the Daily Mail, the on-loan Sunderland ace is attracting the attention of the Blades, Brighton and Palace.
There is a suggestion he could stay at the Stadium of Light if the Black Cats are promoted from League One with both sides keen to do a deal.
Wolves rate the 21-year-old highly but are likely to consider offers as he enters the final year of his contract.
Cardiff City and Sheffield Wednesday wanted to sign him at the start of the season, while Bristol City and Huddersfield Town have now been alerted to his potential availability.
