The Blades loanee is reportedly on the radar of parent club Wolves' new boss Paul Lambert.

Sheffield United goalkeeper Simon Moore has insisted that the club’s loan defender Ethan Ebanks-Landell wants to remain at Bramall Lane – despite rumours he might be on the way back to Wolves in January.

Moore told The Star today that he was sure that the central-defender wants to remain at Sheffield United beyond the end of his loan spell in January:

“Ethan has been fantastic, he’s a great lad and an excellent footballer. Since he’s come here, he’s been superb.

“Obviously, I don’t know whose hands it’s in. But if we can keep him here then fantastic. I know Ethan is enjoying his time here and I’m pretty sure that he wants to stay. But, like the rest of us, he’s just focusing on his next game for us.”

Moore is of course likely to be a big fan of Ebanks-Landell, considering the solidity he has brought to the defence in front of him at Bramall Lane.

Unfortunately the situation at his parent club Wolverhampton Wanderers has changed – which has seen him linked with a return to Molineux in the new year.

Paul Lambert has recently taken over from former manager Walter Zenga – after the Italian was sacked by the club.

The Star reported this week that the new Wolves boss will be watching the Blades in action against Walsall tonight to decide whether the defender has a part to play at Molineux in the second half of the campaign.

The defender has been in good form for Sheffield United this season helping the Blades occupy third position in the League One table.
