Sheffield United are set to go back in for Wolves’ Ethan Ebanks-Landell according to a report from the Sheffield Telegraph.
Ebanks-Landell had a great season on loan with the Blades last season and was one of their key players as they got promoted from Sky Bet League One as champions. But while Sheffield United wanted him back, either on loan or a permanent deal, it seemed like that wouldn’t be happening. Their head coach at the time Paul Lambert signed the defender on a long-term deal and it seemed like he had a part to play in the Wolves team for the next season at the very least.
But with Lambert leaving after having disagreements over transfer strategy with the owners due to super agent Jorge Mendes being handed all control of incomings and outgoings, everything is now up in the air and Ebanks-Landell’s future is now in doubt. Nuno Espirito Santo is now the manager and with their first signing being Ryan Bennett, a player that Sheffield United had targeted, there might be a chance that the academy graduate may be allowed to leave.
And with the Blades missing out on many of their other defensive targets, they are looking to go back in for a defender they know fits in well with the rest of their squad. This is set to be a popular move among many of their fans as well as he is well liked at Bramall Lane for being part of the squad that finally got them out of League One.
