Blades make deadline day signing

2 September 2013

United have bolstered their options with the addition of Florent Cuvelier from Stoke City, the first movement on transfer deadline day.

Cuvelier, a former team-mate of Febian Brandy, has officially put pen-to-paper on a three year-deal, after the Blades agreed an undisclosed fee with the Premier League outfit for the Belgium youth international's services.

The Anderlecht-born attacker first arrived in England in 2008 when he joined Portsmouth's Academy. Due to the financial demise at Fratton Park, Cuvelier signed for Stoke City in the summer of 2010.

The former Belgium U19s captain became a regular in the Potters second string after impressing in the Academy and in January 2012 joining Walsall on-loan.

Cuvelier impressed at the Banks's Stadium, returning to his parent club after scoring four times in 18 appearances, this form earned him a new two-year deal at the Britannia Stadium.

He returned to the Midlands the following season and made 23 appearances, scoring another two goals. In March 2013 Cuvelier joined then Championship outfit Peterborough United, before appearing for Stoke in their final game of the Premiership campaign against Southampton.
