@cookiecat2018 tweeted: “someone please tell me how Jack Rodwell is looking to earn a contract with Sheffield United, according to Wilder he is a talented player that deserves to playing at the top level in the premier league, has no one show him his highlights from his time with SAFC”

@ColMorrow87 said: “Chris wilder has said Jack rodwell has a brilliant attitude, am sure that’s the same guy who didn’t want to kick ball for safc but still pick up 70k a week”

@NotReubAgboola commented: “Seemingly “the most Sunderland thing ever” seems to be trumped every other day lately but nothing would be more of a Sunderland thing than Rodwell securing a squad number at #SUFC and then push on for an England call up”
