Paynter, who has made just one start this campaign, heads to Bramall Lane in search of regular football.

United manager Nigel Clough told the club's official website: "Billy is a proven striker at this level and he gives us additional options with a busy period of fixtures ahead.

"He is cup-tied but available for the league games and will be able to share the load with Chris Porter."

Meanwhile, Blades defender Sean McGinty has joined Northampton on a month-long loan and Marcus Williams has moved to Scunthorpe on a permanent deal.
