John Lundstram's future at Sheffield United is currently the subject of plenty of discussion with some other Premier League clubs being interested in his signature.


Chris Wilder has continued to trust Lundstram and field the 26-year-old in his line-ups, with Lundstram himself not ruling out a stay at Bramall Lane.


Last week, Lundstram said "It's the same situation, everything's still on the table. We'll see what happens."


"Of course, [speculation] is bound to happen but I'm here and while I am here I'm committed, as you've seen in my performances."


"I'm 110 per cent and no-one can question that. Who knows what will happen but while I'm here, I'll give everything."


However, contract negotiations have been ongoing since the end of last season, and there seemingly has been no progress, with it almost being certain that Lundstram will leave the club, four years after he joined them from Oxford United for just £700,000.


Former Aston Villa defender Alan Hutton claimed that Leeds United are interested in him and it would be a good move for him.


"Is he going to go to a top-ten team? I'm not sure, it's a difficult one," he said whilst speaking with Football Insider.


"Sitting here, I don't really think there's any team that I could go: 'He's definitely going to go there.' Leeds United, somewhere like that, where he can get up the pitch and attack, they like to flood forward, would he suit someone like that?"


"I'm pretty positive that there'll be a few teams keeping a close eye on his situation anyway, that's for sure."


According to reports, Lundstram also turned down a move to Rangers, wanting to play in the Premier League rather than going to the Scottish leaders.


Former striker Noel Whelan also claimed that Lundstram could go to Burnley, claiming that "A Burnley type of club would suit him down to the ground and would probably get the best out of him as well."
