Everton midfielder Muhamed Besic has suggested that he wants to remain with Sheffield United beyond this season.
The Bosnia international joined the Blades on a loan deal from the Toffees last summer after being declared surplus to requirements at Goodison Park.
“The people who need to know what I want, they know. So we will see what will happen,” said Everton man Besic, as reported by The Liverpool Echo.
“It’s an unbelievable team, I’m really happy to be here and be part of this.
“I’m just really relaxed. It’s nothing big for me. As long as Chris Wilder is happy I will play for him.”
The 27-year-old joined Everton during the summer of 2014 from Hungarian club Ferencváros.
He had a decent first season at the Goodison Park club under Roberto Martinez as he went on to make 31 Toffees appearances in all competitions during the 2014/15 season. It was all however downhill after that campaign.
Besic is due to return to Everton at the end of the season but has not appeared for the Merseysiders since December 2017 when he featured as a substitute during a Europa League dead rubber against Apollon Limassol.
He has also not exactly had a good season for Sheffield United so far this term and has gone on to make just 12 appearances in all competitions for Chris Wilder’s side to date.
Everton have been struggling this season by their standards and will look to rebuild at the end of the season.
It is really nearly a certainty that new Toffees boss Carlo Ancelotti will offload Besic as he looks to rebuild his club.
It will now be up to Besic to prove to the Bramall Lane faithful that he is worth it for them to keep beyond this campaign.
Sheffield United are currently in eighth position on the Premier League standings and have been impressive so far considering that they only won promotion last season and were tipped to be relegation candidates.
