Florent Cuvelier: Completes Blades switch

The 20-year-old, who has put pen to paper on a three-year contract, could go straight into David Weir's squad for Tuesday night's Johnstone's Paint Trophy tie at Scunthorpe.

Cuvelier, who played alongside Febian Brandy while on loan at Walsall last season, joined Stoke from Portsmouth in July 2010 but failed to make the first-team breakthrough at the Britannia Stadium.

The attacking midfielder, born in Anderlecht,

first arrived in England in 2008 when he joined Portsmouth's Academy and moved on to Stoke in the summer of 2010.

The former Belgium Under-19s captain made a total of 40 appearances in two separate loan spells for Walsall and made one appearance for Peterborough while on loan at London Road for a month late last season.

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.
