Sheffield United loan star Mo Besic is earning plenty of praise from Blades fans after breaking into Chris Wilder’s side of late and the Everton midfielder has been quoted by the Liverpool Echo as suggesting he is keen for a permanent deal.
Besic, 27, joined Sheffield United on a season-long loan from Everton in the summer but managed just one substitute appearance in his temporary side’s first 15 Premier League matches. However, he has broken into the side of late.
Indeed, the 44-time Bosnia international has featured in eight of the last nine league games – starting twice including the 1-0 defeat to Premier League champions Manchester City on Tuesday evening. He has played all three Cup games.
Asked about his future, former Ferencvaros midfielder Besic has stated that he is happy at Bramall Lane and will play for Chris Wilder as long as the Blades manager is happy with him.
“The people who need to know what I want, they know. So we will see what will happen,” Besic said. “It’s an unbelievable team, I’m really happy to be here and be part of this. It’s nothing big for me. As long as Chris Wilder is happy I will play for him.”
TBR’s view – Besic the ideal Sheffield United midfielder
Wilder would be foolish not to land Besic, who despite his injury problems, has plenty of experience at club level and on the international stage. Though he may not be first choice, the £4million Everton signing (Guardian) is perfect for the Blades.
That is because he has the relentless work ethic that Sheffield United require. John Fleck, John Lundstram and Sheffield United’s other central midfielders are all renowned for their constant hassling – and Besic is just another example of that.
