Aaron Ramsdale has “no intention” of leaving Sheffield United, despite reported interest from West Ham United and Burnley.
That’s according to The Sheffield Star, who add that Ramsdale sees his long-term future at Bramall Lane.
West Ham were the first to be linked with the goalkeeper, with their own stoppers now well into their 30s.
The Hammers apparently view Ramsdale as a long-term successor to Lukasz Fabianski and Darren Randolph.
Meanwhile, the Clarets are showing interest in the 22-year-old if their current number one, Nick Pope, leaves.
Pope is being eyed up as a £45m transfer and Ramsdale is considered as an ideal replacement.
Yet the England Under-21 international does not want a move away from the Blades just 12 months after joining from Bournemouth.
Ramsdale showing commitment as West Ham lurk
The turnaround in form of Ramsdale this season has been one of the few positives in a sorry campaign for the club.
Following his £18m switch from the Cherries, the ‘keeper initially struggled between the posts.
Ramsdale later admitted he “lost belief”. But he’s worked hard to turn his performances around.
Since the turn of 2021 the stopper has put in a string of fine displays. Yorkshire Live now says he’s a strong contender to be named the Blades’ player of the year.
Ramsdale has also previously pledged his commitment to the club where he came through the youth ranks, before leaving for Dorset in 2017.
“This is now time for me to kick on. Whatever league we’re in next year, I want to be part of it,” he said.
Considering Ramsdale potentially has the chance to stay playing in the Premier League following United’s relegation, this is great to hear.
If the Blades are to mount a serious promotion push from the Championship next term, he will be key to that success.
