Weir, who will embark on his first season as a manager after replacing Danny Wilson at Bramall Lane, added former Walsall winger Febian Brandy and versatile Scot Stephen McGinn from Watford, plus teenagers Sean McGinty and Jasper Johns from Manchester United and Everton respectively, all on free transfers.

"We've done quite a bit of a work on these deals so at this moment there is nothing else imminent," Weir told the club's official website.

"However, if we can improve the squad within budgetary restrictions we will do. We're keeping an eye out for good players."

Weir said Brandy in particular will add a new dimension to the Blades next season.

He added: "Febian is different. He has pace to burn, he's exciting and can unlock defences. He's a contrast to what we already have in the squad.

"It's important to have a bit of unexpectedness in your team and I think that Febian offers us that. He's always thinking about going forward and that's a strength."

hould have stayed because we carried him for 6.5 years. And then he has a breakthrough season, and was gone soon after. MU fans, you would be as disgusted had C Ronaldo left in 2007 and not 2009.

ood grief. Someone guessed that the form English player at the moment might be in his national side with some other players? And that's espionage? Now if they discovered that Emile Heskey was going to be in the starting line up.... at right back.... THAT would be espionage. Give it a rest Roy.
