John Lundstram could join Leeds United this summer after snubbing a move to Rangers, according to Alan Hutton.
Speaking exclusively to Football Insider, the former Rangers and Aston Villa defender believes the Sheffield United 26-year-old could struggle to move to a top-ten Premier League side and suggested Elland Road as a potential destination.
As revealed by Football Insider earlier this week, Lundstram has no plans to join Rangers when he becomes a free agent this summer despite interest from Ibrox.
The midfielder is understood to have several offers on the table, including from fellow top-flight sides in England, ahead of his contract expiring at Bramall Lane.
Hutton admitted it was tough to figure out where Lundstram could move to this summer but touted a possible move across Yorkshire to join up with Marcelo Bielsa and his squad.
Asked by Football Insider assistant editor Russell Edge where he thought Lundstram could end up, Hutton said: “Is he going to go to a top-ten team? I’m not sure, it’s a difficult one.
“Sitting here, I don’t really think there’s any team that I could go: ‘He’s definitely going to go there.’ Leeds United, somewhere like that, where he can get up pitch and attack, they like to flood forward, would he suit someone like that?
“I’m pretty positive that there’ll be a few teams keeping a close eye on his situation anyway, that’s for sure.”
Leeds currently have the likes of Kalvin Phillips, Mateusz Klich and youngster Jamie Shackleton as their midfield options, as well as long-term absentee Adam Forshaw.
The Whites failed in their pursuit of a new midfielder last summer as deals for Michael Cuisance and Rodrigo De Paul failed to materialise.
