Uwe Rösler is attempting to lure Steve Sidwell into Leeds United
The German coach of Leeds United, Uwe Rösler is interested in signing the veteran midfielder Steve Sidwell but will have to entice Stoke City with a good enough offer in order for the Premier League club to start considering releasing the player that they signed a little over one year ago.
Steve Sidwell joined Stoke City on 9 of 2014 as he signed a 2 year long contract with the Premier League club on a free transfer but Sidwell hasn’t really made an impact in the team after only making 12 league appearances for Stoke City in the previous season and the majority of them arrived from the bench as he entered those games as a substitute player.
In the pecking order of Stoke City, Sidwell has struggled trying to snatch a regular spot ahead of Glenn Whelan and Charlie Adam. Sidwell still has one more year left in his contract with the Premier League club but it might end sooner depending if Leeds United is able to snatch him up during the summer transfer window as Uwe Rösler is interested in snapping him up but a move will depend if whether or not Stoke City want to let him go.
The original summer target that Uwe Rösler wanted to sign that could reinforce the midfield department of Leeds United was Joey Barton but he is looking as less and less of an option considering that Barton is demanding high wages and now Uwe Rösler is locking his eyes on Stoke City’s Steve Sidwell who can turn into is an easier target to sign.
The playing career of Sidwell has seen him playing with a number of different English clubs including: Arsenal, Brentford, Brighton & Hove Albion, Reading, Chelsea, Aston Villa, Fulham and Stoke City. Having played with so many clubs, his experience is something that has attracted the attention of Uwe Rösler.
