King is free to sign outside of the transfer window as he left Birmingham City before the deadline earlier this month.

He is a proven goalscorer in the Football League, having impressed at the likes of Watford, Coventry City and Birmingham.

United - tipped to be among the League One frontrunners this season - have taken just four points from their opening seven fixtures, netting only five goals.

After spending time training with the Blades, King has now been handed a deal by manager David Weir.

Weir said: "We have struggled for goals and he fits the criteria. He's a goalscorer, he has experience and he has been there and done it.

"He played in the last round of internationals for Jamaica so he is fit. As a team we have not scored enough goals and he can help us."

King told United's official website: "Goals win games; I bring goals but also experience to try and get the boys rallied and help the cause.

"It's a great set-up, a great fanbase and, if selected, I can bring something to the table."

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.
