Jack ​Rodwell training with Sheffield Utd

Former England and Sunderland midfielder Jack Rodwell is getting a Premier League lifeline.

He is spending a few days with Sheffield United and Chris Wilder, which could be his last chance to get back into England's top division.

Rodwell was once a promising star at Everton and tipped for great things.

But his career has fallen by the wayside due to injuries and lack of form.

But the 28-year-old is getting another chance, if he can show Sheffield United he is still good enough.

Sheffield boss Wilder told reporters about the Rodwell situation: "Jack is in for a few days, but it's not a trial.

"We know about Jack. He's without a club at the moment after a couple of experiences in Italy.

"As you've seen in the past, David McGoldrick came in for a few days as well. Jack is looking at us, and we're looking at Jack.

"He's a very, very talented player who should be playing in the Premier League regularly but, for one reason or another, he isn't.

"He's got a really good attitude and it's basically him looking at us, and us looking at him to see how he is in terms of how healthy he is.

"But he's obviously a talent because of the teams he's played for. He's looking for a home, and it's something that might develop along the way."
