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."

robably the first list I've come across in a long time where I agree with a large majority of what was written. Can't agree with everything though, Zaba has had an awful season by his standards, I'd put Monreal (a player who I've never rated) up there, gotta give credit where it's due, he's really stepped up his game.
