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.

was there, it was embarrassing - the team looked totally unbalanced from the off, the defence was woeful and when Mikel came off injured it got even worse with nobody in front of them. Up front on several occasions we had opportunities and nobody would shoot - it was a complete farse! On the back of Salah's performance I'm glad there is talk of getting shot...

reat to see Tommy Rosicky getting some love. A wonderful player. Such a pity we lost so long to injury. I was so excited when we signed him, this resurgence only makes the absences seem more of a lost opportunity.
