PremierLeague-News.Com - Breaking Sport Transfer News ! Sheffield United's out-of-contract players have been told their futures will not be addressed until the new manager arrives. There are six players whose deals expire at the end of the season, but one of those is John Lundstram, who looks almost certain to leave after rejecting numerous deals. That leaves five players with uncertain futures right now. Simon Moore, Jack Rodwell, Kean Bryan, Phil Jagielka and Regan Slater, who is currently on loan at Hull City, will be free to leave the club in the summer unless a new deal is offered. In Slater's case there is an option for a further year should United wish to trigger that. Interim manager Paul Heckingbottom has been helping the club find its feet behind the scenes following the departure of Chris Wilder in March. And although he has held conversations about a number of matters involving the squad and canvassed people's opinions on those players, he says the final decision must rest with the new manager. "We were already having those conversations anyway in terms of feedback from all the staff on the current squad, player situations," he said. "That only changes when the new manager comes in, because that's when you have to drive it, whether it's convincing players to stay, telling people they are not needed, whether that's identifying and going after targets and trying to capture the heart of new signings and get them involved. "We have been having those discussions but when that man comes through the door and is tasked with driving these things forward we would love to have as much information as possible and as much help there ready to go. "I've only had conversations with the club about current staff's opinions here.

. Nothing has been set in stone. "Let's talk hypothetically. Say a new manager has been agreed and no one knows, but he's already in a job so they can't get him in, he will still be doing his homework on players, watching players and watching games and asking about. "But until he takes the job he can't be telling players yes or no your career at Sheffield United is over or I want you to stay, you can't be doing that. "There will be lots of work going off between people on that shortlist, they'll all probably be doing their own homework on these things. "It has to be the manager. The manager coming in has to have the greatest input in regards to that." With plenty of decisions facing the new manager, Heckingbottom says it is in the interests of everyone if that appointment is made sooner rather than later. "The longer it goes on the less time you are giving yourself to be prepared, without a doubt," he added.
