And former team-mate Fleck has told the Englishman to grab his opportunity with both hands.
The 27-year-old was previously at the Blades alongside Gers youth product – who clearly wasted no time in talking up his boyhood club.
Lundstram told Rangers TV: “I had a walk around and it was an eye-opener to how big it was and I can’t wait to get started now.
“(I was attracted by) the size of the club and the gaffer. Speaking to Steven was a massive draw for me, I was speaking to Flecky and people like that and he said ‘don’t hesitate to get up there’ and that.

“I’m made up to get it over the line and hopefully I can contribute to a bit of success.
“Every Liverpool fan growing up idolised Steven, that’s the way it was in Liverpool. To speak to him and for someone like him to want me was massive.
“I want to learn from him and I’m coming into my prime and hopefully I can play my best football here and I’m sure he can help me.”
Meanwhile, Bruno Alves reckons Rangers should demand £20million from Porto for Alfredo Morelos.
And the ex-Gers defender believes the Colombian hitman would prove to be worth every penny of that fee.

The Portuguese giants are keen to sign the 24-year-old and have reportedly held talks with the striker’s agent over a potential deal.
And Alves has told the Liga NOS side to cough up the cash for his former team-mate.
The duo will become league rivals, with veteran defender Alves having recently joined Famalicao from Parma.
Alves spent a season playing alongside Morelos at Ibrox, and the pair struck up a close friendship with the striker.
The 39-year-old reckons the Colombian striker – currently on Copa America duty with his country ahead of Wednesday’s semi-final against Argentina – is ready for the challenge if he decides it’s time to end his four-year star at Ibrox.
Rangers will demand top dollar if they are to lose their prized asset, and Alves reckons the Light Blues are right to ask for such a fee.
