‘Quality player’, ‘gonna be missed’: Some fans react as Rangers-linked 26-year-old Brit rejects new deal

Reported Glasgow Rangers target John Lundstram is set for pastures new – could he be joining Steven Gerrard and co at Ibrox next year?

According to the Glasgow Times, the Gers have been put on “high alert” after the 26-year-old turned down a new contract offer at Sheffield United.

Lundstram’s current deal expires next summer and talks have broken down over a new long-term deal, with the midfielder turning down several improved offers to extend his stay.

United boss Chris Wilder confirmed that his player “doesn’t want to sign” despite being offered a “very good contract” to try and keep him at the club.

Lundstram has been with the Blades since his 2017 move from Oxford United for a reported £500,000 fee, and has made 94 competitive appearances for the Yorkshire club, registering eight goals and seven assists.

With the official confirmation from Wilder that the Brit has rejected a new deal and will potentially run his contract down, some Sheff Utd fans have given their thoughts on social media:
