The 28-year-old has penned an initial six-month deal at Bramall Lane, with Chris Wilder praising his character after a trial spell in South Yorkshire.

“People have these perceptions of players like Ravel [Morrison] and Jack and they are completely unfathomed,” said the Blades’ boss

“Sometimes people want a villain but you get into them and get to know them and they’re really good lads who have a desire to play for this club.”

And Sunderland fans had plenty to say about those comments.

On Facebook, Sue Hollins said: ““There is a lot of nonsense that has been talked about Jack,” says Wilder ....well let’s see if he still thinks we talked nonsense come the end of this season.”

Wilf Newall added: “Wilder you’re delusional, I’m a fan and he treated us terrible”

Paul Noble joked: “This news has just ruined my new year.”

But Neil Cain argued: “It’s simple the lad got talent . If anyone can get the best out of him .... Chris Wider is your man.”

Meanwhile on Twitter, @PNelsonPhoto posted: “Tenner a week would be too much. Absolute waste of space. He has no point to prove, he's not bothered about playing. Just looking for the next pay day.”

@Doddy759 jested: “Careful think he's allergic to red and white stripes he barely puts them on”

@DaveyPalmer1 added: “How any club would want to sign the coward that is #JackRodwell is beyond me.”

@Philip_RJ89 said: “So you can have a wretched, ‘me me me’, money-grabbing kind of attitude, and still bag yourself a deal with a Premier League club. The mind boggles.....”

@graeme7078 tweeted: “He won’t be there long”

@darksidemackem, however, commented: “I thought Jack Rodwell was pretty good and I reckon he’ll do well at Sheffield United”

@seanc510 added: “Rodwell was a catastrophic disaster due to his attitude, health and inability to actually be good at footy. This is such a disservice to Sunderland and typical of those not watching regularly.”
