The former QPR man was also linked with Leeds United during this transfer window, but Chris Wilder’s side have beaten out their Yorkshire rivals in the race for his signature as they gear up for life back in the Premier League.
Wilder has seemingly been after a new number 10 this summer after being linked with Everton’s Kieran Dowell, and now he has got his man.
Which Sheffield United players won’t cut it in the top-flight next season? Ingood Nick discusses in the video below…
After putting up seven goals and six assists last season it looks like he could be a great signing for the newly-promoted side and could compete with Mark Duffy for a spot behind the two strikers in the Y0rkshire outfit’s starting XI.
Understandably, United fans took to social media to share their delight about this signing.
Here’s what the Bramall Lane faithful have been saying on Twitter…
