Harrison McGahey is optimistic about the future, despite a losing start to his United career on Saturday.
The 18-year-old centre-half, who joined the Blades from Blackpool last Friday on a two-year contract, made his Blades bow in the 4-0 defeat at Burton Albion, but McGahey believes fitness comes before results at this stage in pre-season.
The youngster remarked: "The result obviously wasn't as we had hoped, but for me personally and the rest of the lads it was good to get back out there.
"The first couple of games are purely about sharpness and then as we get closer to that first league game there will be a greater emphasis placed on the results."
On swapping Lancashire for Yorkshire, McGahey added: "The Gaffer and his coaching staff have been fantastic with me since I arrived and the lads have made settling in very easy.
"I am confident in what I can do and hopefully I can prove myself having moved on from Blackpool.
"It was quite an easy decision to make; the aim is promotion here and there is a really positive mood about the place after the way the Club finished last season."
