Coady excited

23 July 2013

England U20s captain Conor Coady is excited to join the Blades and is keen to break into David Weir's first team plans.

The Liverpool midfielder signed a loan deal until January at Bramall Lane on Monday and immediately made his debut, playing 60 minutes in the 1-0 victory over Alfreton Town.

"I'm looking forward to what the season has in store for me," said 20-year-old Coady. "It has been a busy few weeks for me, I played in the U20s World Cup, had a couple of weeks off and when I reported back to Liverpool, Brendan Rodgers called me in and said I was coming to Sheffield United, which I'm really excited about.

"I had the option to go on Liverpool pre-season's tour before coming here but I told them that I would rather get over to Sheffield United as quickly as possible to meet the lads.

"The aim is to play as much as I can, I want to break into the team as quickly as possible but I know it is going to take some fantastic performances because there are some great lads here.

"Brendan Rodgers was pushing for me to go out on loan and get some games and he says that David Weir is going to be a great manager, so I'm looking forward to working with him."

Scouser Coady rose through Liverpool's youth ranks and was captain of their U21s team last season. Additionally, he has played for every England at age group from U16s to U20s and was skipper at the FIFA U20s World Cup this summer.
