Sean McGinty is determined to make the most of his opportunity with the Blades, after making his competitive debut against Colchester United last Saturday.
The Maidstone-born defender is confident of becoming a regular in David Weir's plans and is determined to repay the faith the Gaffer has shown in him since arriving in Sheffield in the summer.
McGinty remarked: "It was a good game to be thrown into and I was pleased with how I performed, although there is much more to come. I owe a lot to the manager because he has been true to his word and my hard work on the training pitch has given me an opportunity to prove myself.
"It is down to me now and when I cross that white line on a Saturday afternoon I have to do everything in my power to retain my place and make the shirt my own.
"The way the manager wants to play suits me, I am more than happy getting up and down the left, but obviously first and foremost I am there to defend and be a part of the work of the back four."
The former Old Trafford trainee is determined to kick start his career in South Yorkshire, after learning his trade alongside some of the world's best defenders.
He added: "I have grown up and trained alongside some of the best attacking left-backs in the game, I have learnt plenty by watching and working with the likes of Patrice Evra, who is obviously a fantastic player.
"I may not have as much League One experience compared to some of the other young lads in this team, but I would like to think that I can use my four years at Manchester United to my advantage as I try to establish myself with Sheffield United this season."
