Steven Gerrard is a big fan of Sheffield United target Glen Kamara

Sheffield United have apparently renewed their interest in Rangers midfielder, Glen Kamara, with 90Min reporting the Blades are back in the hunt for Finland ace.

It marks a potential revisiting of interest United showed back in January when the club eventually opted to spend big on Sander Berge instead.

However, it would appear Chris Wilder has not forgotten about Kamara. And it seems that the Blades boss has good reason to move for the 24-year-old.

His current boss, Steven Gerrard, has often sung the praises of Kamara but it was a glowing reference following a 5-0 win over Kilmarnock that will give Blades fans an indication into the type of player Kamara is.


“He was a class act the other night, I thought he was superb from start to finish. Without Alfredo’s goals, he would certainly have been the man of the match. It was nice to see midfielders taking the ball off the guys at the back and making us tick. Glen connected the game really well.

“He was also very aggressive out of possession and that’s where I believe he can keep improving and moving forward and become an even better player than he is now.”

Those comments from Gerrard give a nice little insight into how the Rangers star operates. Chris Wilder, then, will be hoping he can fend off the competition to land the 24-year-old.

Given the comments from Gerrard above, plus others along the way, suggest Kamara is a class-act. Indeed, following his capture in 2019, the Gers boss explained how you could instantly ‘see in training today the quality is there to see’.

Kamara, then, could well be ideal in the Blades midfield and may well prove an eventual successor to either Ollie Norwood or John Lundstram.
