Jack Rodwell could be on his way back to the Premier League

Rodwell went on trial with Roma but they decided against signing him and he also trained at Parma but has so far not joined a new side.

The Telegraph report that he has been training with the Blades ahead of a possible move to Bramall Lane as manager Chris Wilder looks to strengthen his squad for the rest of the season.


Sheffield United have been one of the surprise packages this season after getting promoted from the Championship and have taken points off Chelsea, Arsenal and Manchester United.

Rodwell played 22 times for Blackburn last season but is currently without a club.

He started his career at Everton before he moved to Manchester City in 2012 for around £12million.

Two years later he went to Sunderland for £10million but injuries have hampered his playing time.
