Lundstram keen to get started

26 July 2017

John Lundstram says he didn't have to think twice about joining the Blades.

United's sixth signing of the close season put pen-to-paper on a three-year deal on Tuesday afternoon, with the Blades paying Oxford United an undisclosed fee for their skipper.

And Lundstram is looking forward to playing under his new boss, remarking: "The magnitude of the club was a big pull and I've played against Chris Wilder teams in the past and the style of play suits me and what I'm about.

"It's took a bit longer than ideal, but I'm delighted it's over the line now. It's shame I couldn't play against Stoke but the minutes will come.

"I'm fit and ready to go when selected, I've been in Sheffield for a couple of days and settled in quickly with the lads, who are a great bunch."

The 23-year-old, who has Championship experience, added: "I've grown as a person, I'm more of a man on the pitch now and I just want to play football.

"I've had my ups and downs, including playing in the Championship with Blackpool and Yeovil, but they were massive learning curves for me and have helped me get back to that level."
