Sheffield United are reportedly interested in the Norwich City winger, who is currently on loan to Bolton Wanderers.
Fans of Bolton Wanderers and Norwich City are reacting on Twitter to reports linking Sheffield United with Yanic Wildschut.
Norwich are reported to have paid around £7 million for Wildschut two years ago, but have loaned him out in each of the last two campaigns – first to Cardiff City and now Bolton.
The Dutch winger has scored two goals and assisted none in 17 games for the Trotters this season, but according to the Sun on Sunday (December 30, page 56), that has not put off Sheffield United.
The newspaper reports the Blades are interested in taking Wildschut on loan for the rest of the campaign, despite the player being due to spend it at Bolton.
But what do those of a Trotters (and Norwich) persuasion make of the potential Sheffield United recruit?
This is what they’re saying…
If what the papers are saying he is on 12 grand a week ship him out not worth that sort of money give him the escape route.— Karenbwfcsimpson (@Karenbwfcsimps1) December 31, 2018

Good player in a good side!!— Paul Walsh (@PJWalsh1982) December 30, 2018
Don’t get me wrong, he’s been painfully ineffective and at times he has been simply bad. However, Wildschut has something about him and has shown that in the past, it wouldn’t be the first time Parkinson has completely mismanaged an attacking footballer. #BWFC #TwitterBlades— The Burnden Way (@BurndenWay) December 30, 2018

Truly woeful footballer,— John Wilson (@JohnWilson0812) December 31, 2018
Literally his only goal for us ever, terrible footballer— . (@tjncfc) December 31, 2018
bring him back let’s use him— mark pardoe (@pardy86) December 31, 2018
Personally I think Wildschut should stay, as he may be useful with Buendia out injured. Besides, if he wasnt a success at Bolton how can you be so sure he’ll be a success at Sheffield United? #ncfc https://t.co/ZEMGjicX2V— The Norfolk Sonic (@Ginger_Canary) December 31, 2018
Norwich and Sheffield United are currently competing for automatic promotion to the Premier League, which could affect the Canaries’ decision-making when it comes to loaning out Wildschut again.
Could Wildschut be a good addition for Sheffield United?
