Ex-Rangers star and one-time club prodigy John Fleck is attracting interest from Premier League West Ham United, at least according to Sky Sports.

Sky Sports journalist Keith Downie also suggested on Twitter that Fleck, who currently plies his trade with Sheffield United, is to be the subject of a £4m bid.

John Fleck, now 27, was held in very esteem at Ibrox and tipped for the very top, once being credited as the Scottish Wayne Rooney. He made his Rangers debut against East Stirlingshire in the Scottish Cup as a 16 year old against.

Fleck would make his league debut later that season (07/08) against Aberdeen.

 

Under the stewardship of Walter Smith, big things were expected of Fleck. But it never seemed to happen like that for the midfielder.

Fleck moved on after Rangers went to the wall in 2012 and joined Coventry City. Over the last six years or so he has developed into an intelligent playmaker and is having a superb season with Sheffield United.

He moved to Bramall Lane in 2016. Fleck has been a stand out for a Blades side sitting third in a competitive Championship.

Now, he could be set for a big money move to the Premier League with West Ham United.

Interestingly, Fleck has yet to receive a Scotland call-up despite his good form in the English Championship.

Former Gers captain Lee McCulloch tipped Fleck to star for Scotland in an Evening Times column in November. You can read our story on that HERE.
