West Ham fans have been reacting to the news of a potential pursuit of Sheffield United midfielder John Lundstram after the player’s manager confirmed it is likely he will leave.
Chris Wilder named the best option available to the club regarding Lundstram as to ”try to recoup some value for the player in the January window.”
The 26-year-old has rejected the offer of a new deal and his current contract will expire next summer.
David Moyes, who would have known Lundstram as a youngster during his time at Everton was reportedly interested in signing the midfielder in the summer, and could now attempt to sign him once more this winter at a cut-price.
Irons fans have had their say on the potential pursuit of Lundsteam…
Twitter: @WestHam_Central @ExWHUemployee Looks a grafter from what I’ve seen last season. Good backup for Rice and Soucek (@jacksonbevs)
Twitter: @WestHam_Central @ExWHUemployee I’d certainly be in favour of this.
Him and King in will do nicely.

READ WEST HAM VERDICT
Following the confirmation of Lundstram all but definitely leaving the club from Blades boss Wilder, this is a deal that has suddenly gained plenty of traction.
Despite not seemingly actively pursuing a deal throughout the summer, the changing availability and the likelihood of a reduction in transfer fee makes the possible purchase of a player like Lundstram almost a no-brainer for Moyes.
