Former Yeovil Town loanee John Lundstram has been signed up by Championship newcomers Sheffield United. The 23 year old former Everton academy player has penned a three year contract after leaving Oxford United for an undisclosed fee, which has been reported in the media as being in the region of £500,000 or slightly above.
Lundstram joined Oxford in the summer of 2015 and had been on a three year contract at the Kassam Stadium. However, with only a year left to run on that deal, Oxford have decided to cash in on that deal, ending a stay that saw him complete 96 starts and eight substitute appearances, scoring four goals. Manager Pep Clotet said that they got an 'attractive fee' from the Blades:
"John has been a big part of the club for the past two seasons and has always given his best. He is ambitious and had the chance to play in a higher division, and from our point of view, we tried our best to persuade him to stay. Having said this, we have received an attractive fee for a player who was entering the last year of his contract and this will allow further reinvestment to build squad quality and depth."
Lundstram played for Yeovil Town during their 2013-14 Championship season, scoring twice in 16 appearances. He returned to Everton in March 2014 when his playing time started to dry up slightly, following the arrival of Tom Lawrence and Duane Holmes as loanees that meant the Glovers had to juggle with six loanees. Lundstram almost immediately went out on loan to Leyton Orient during that month.
