Premier League side West Ham United are reportedly interested in signing Sheffield United star John Fleck.
The Scotsman has been a fantastic servant for the Blades over the last few years, but have reportedly entered talks with the Hammers over the possible £4 million sale of the 27-year old.
The midfielder has been a regular for Chris Wilder’s men having made 29 appearances in all competitions, but the decision to sell the 27-year old could potentially be a big shock to the Bramall Lane faithful.
Fleck, who was named United’s Player of the Year last season, still has three-and-a-half years left on his deal at Bramall Lane, but here, we discuss whether he’d be a good signing for West Ham.
“Fleck to West Ham? It’d be a baffling decision to let him go.
“Not only is £4million an absolute bargain for a player of his quality, but he has been so important for United over the last few years, especially after being given the Player of the Year award last season.
“Wilder isn’t one to make some poor decisions, but this could be a massive mistake by the Blades.”
“It’s an interesting development, I’m not sure he’s what West Ham need.
“Fleck is a good player, but he fits into what Sheffield United do and I’m not sure he’d have the same impact elsewhere.
“He’s got enough class for the Premier League, but it’d be a bold decision to leave now.”
“A decent signing.
“He’s a quality player for Sheffield United but he wouldn’t be the big-name arrival that West Ham fans would maybe be hoping for.
“Nevertheless, he’d do a job in the Premier League and would be a very useful squad player for the Hammers – although the Blades would be mad to sell now.”
