Murphy is the second signing for the Blades in as many days after the League One promotion hopefuls sealed a deal with Danny Higginbotham on Wednesday.

The 23-year-old, who can play on either wing or as a central striker, finalised his move for an undisclosed fee to Bramall Lane after Motherwell's 1-0 defeat by Celtic.

Murphy had an eventful game at Celtic Park, winning a late penalty for the visitors, and Blades boss Danny Wilson is more than happy to have landed the player.

Wilson said: "We are absolutely delighted to have secured a deal to bring Jamie to Sheffield United because the lad is a real talent.

"He is quick, strong on the ball and a good runner in possession. He will put defenders on the back foot and will offer us great versatility in forward positions.

"Jamie has a real eye for goal and will give us that bit extra quality that we need to unlock some stubborn League One defences."

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.
