Sheffield United midfielder and present contract rebel John Lundstram has been linked with a move to SE25 in a bargain deal – with fan opinion divided over whether the midfielder should don the famous red-and-blue.

Crystal Palace have been handed a transfer boost ahead of the January transfer window after it emerged that the Premier League side will sanction the departure of a contract rebel in January.

According to The Star, English midfielder John Lundstram, who is entering the final year of his contract with Sheffield United, has been allowed to leave by the Sheffield hierarchy before the expiration of his contract as they look to recoup a nominal transfer fee.

Riedewald Calls on Palace to Show More Confidence on the Ball

  Riedewald Calls on Palace to Show More Confidence on the Ball Dutch midfielder Jairo Riedewald has challenged Crystal Palace to demonstrate better confidence in possession following a late draw with principal rivals Brighton. The Eagles failed to create a shot from open play throughout the entirety of the match, with their goal coming from Wilfried Zaha’s 19th-minute penalty after Tariq Lamptey was adjudged to have pulled Michy Batshuayi down in the Brighton box. Riedewald, a 2017 signing in the short-lived Frank de Boer period, made his first Premier League start since a 3-0 defeat to Leicester in the 2019/20 season.

This was pretty much confirmed this morning when Blades boss Chris Wilder said that he would not be signing a new deal in his press conference.

With Lundstram unlikely to sign a new deal, the midfielder could be available for a minimal fee and would represent a superb bargain by the club – but does Hodgson’s side need any new midfield reinforcements?

The Eagles boast significant depth at present. James McArthur, Luka Milivojevic, James McCarthy, Max Meyer and Jairo Riedewald are just some of the key figures on the Eagles’ books at present.

Unless the Eagles were planning to lose any of them in the near future, Lundstram would face intense competition for starting XI places in SE25. Instead, the Eagles would be better off reinforcing positions lacking in depth.

It should be noted that Riedewald and Meyer are among a number of figures out of contract in the summer; were they to leave on free transfers, perhaps that would open up the case for Lundstram to make the move to SE25.

Lundstram has found the net eight times since departing Oxford United in 2017 and helped the Blades to comfortably remain in the Premier League in the 2019/20 season – even scoring the winner against the Eagles in their 1-0 home victory in a game that was tinged with disappointment for Eagles fans.

Palace fans were keen to voice their opinion over Lundstram making the switch to SE25…
