Sheffield United fans have praised Rangers linked John Lundstram for his performance against Tottenham on Sunday afternoon.

The Blades lost 3-1 to Spurs at Bramall Lane, with Serge Aurier and Harry Kane netting for the visitors in the first half and Tanguy Ndombele adding a spectacular third in the 62nd minute, after David McGoldrick had briefly given United hope.

Former Gers player John Fleck assisted the host’s only goal, but it was his midfield partner Lundstram who many supporters felt was the standout player in red and white.

Here’s a selection of reactions to his performance from Twitter:

 

The Gers have been linked with a number of midfielders in recent times, including Kenny McLean [Scottish Sun] and Fatai Gbadamosi [90min.com].

As a Premier League regular for the past season and a half, though, Lundstam is the alleged target that’s currently playing at the highest level.

While some Blades fans continue to plead with their club to tie the 26-year-old down to a new contract, Chris Wilder confirmed in October that his player had rejected several improved offers and predicted that he would look to run his current contract down [Sky Sports].

 

The Yorkshire club are rock bottom of the English top-flight with five points from 19 matches and the fact that they are near-guaranteed to be playing in the Championship next season, won’t help any last-ditch attempts to hold onto Lundstram.

Injuries aside, Rangers are relatively well-stocked in midfield right now, but Steven Davis’ future is yet to be resolved, while Bongani Zungu is currently only on loan from Ligue 1 side Amiens.

Davis, Joe Aribo and Glen Kamara started in midfield for the Gers in the 1-1 draw at Motherwell on Sunday afternoon and one of them topped our Player Ratings with an impressive individual display.
