JCR on Blades switch

20 May 2014

Jamal Campbell-Ryce says he had no hesitation in agreeing to join the Blades once he knew of Nigel Clough's interest.

The 31-year-old, who penned a two-year contract on Monday to join Clough's side next season, will officially become a Blade on 1st July when his current deal at Meadow Lane expires.

And the Jamaican is desperate to return to action in pre-season after securing a switch up the M1, he commented: ​"Kieron Freeman, who finished the season on-loan with the Blades, dropped me a text to say he had heard there was a bit of interest in me.

"It has all happened quickly from there, my agent spoke to the Chief Scout here and thankfully it hasn't taken long to get it all signed up.

"As soon as heard about the possible interest I told my agent to get the deal done. It is a terrific opportunity, Sheffield United is a massive Club that shouldn't be in League One and I hope I can play my part in getting them into the Championship next season.

"Personally it is a fantastic move and I feel it is my reward for helping Notts County stay up last season."

On what Unitedites can expect to see from him, Campbell-Ryce added: "I run more now than when I was younger, but I still love to create and score goals.

"I am at my best when I am running at defenders and putting them on the back foot. I am more experienced now and I appreciate there is competition for places.

"I am confident that I will be able to offer a lot to the team when I am given the chance."
