Former Sheffield United midfielder Johnny Ertl is weighing up offers from two League One clubs and Austrian outfit Sturm Graz.

The versatile 29-year-old, who is able to operate in defence and midfield, is available as a free agent after parting company with Sheffield United.

He has spent the last four years in England turning out for Crystal Palace and the Blades.

Boasting considerable Football League experience, it comes as no surprise to find that he is generating interest.


Ertl must now decide whether to continue his career in the third tier of English football or return to his homeland.

"I am mulling over a few offers from England and abroad," he told Sky Sports.

"I hope to make a decision on my future soon.

"My decision will come down to the sporting project and where I best see my future."
