The Blades have today completed the loan signing of England U20s captain, Conor Coady.


The Liverpool player, who can operate in midfield or defence, has agreed a youth loan that keeps him at Bramall Lane until January.


Boss David Weir comments: "I've been aware of Conor's talents for a long-time, through his development with Liverpool and England and he is a great prospect. He will add competition for places in the midfield and will be an asset for us."


Coady, who was a team-mate of George Long at the FIFA U20s World Cup earlier this summer, featured for Liverpool twice last season, once in the Europa League and once in the Premiership.


Liverpool-born Coady becomes Weir's sixth signing since becoming Blades boss, joining Febian Brandy, Stephen McGinn, Sean McGinty, Jasper Johns and Lyle Taylor, who signed from Falkirk for an undisclosed fee earlier this week.


He could feature in this evening's encounter at Alfreton.
