McNulty looking forward to Scougall reunion

20 May 2014

Marc McNulty says he excited by the opportunity of playing for Sheffield United.

The 21-year-old joined the Blades on a three-year contract on Monday, after United agreed an undisclosed fee with Livingston for his services and McNulty is glad that the deal has been tied up so early in the summer.

He remarked: ​"I am delighted to have completed the move, having recently spent a couple of days around the Club towards the end of the season.

"It is exciting it is all official now because I knew a couple of weeks ago that things were close to getting tied up.

"I spent some time with the Gaffer at Derby County last summer, but for whatever reason that move never came off."

The striker, who netted 19 times for Livi last season, takes United's Scottish contingent to seven and he has admitted it was the words of former Livingston team-mate Stefan Scougall that convinced him further to move south, adding:

"I am very good friends with Stefan Scougall, he is someone I have know since I was a young boy and he has nothing but good things to say about Sheffield United.

"In fact, since joining in January, he says he has loved every minute and hearing such positive comments made the decision to move down even easier.

"The Club had a tremendous FA Cup run and only just fell short of reaching the play-offs after a very slow start under the previous manager.

"I am told that the supporters and passionate and fanatical about their Club and I am itching to get started in pre-season. I honestly can't wait to experience the atmosphere of Bramall Lane on a matchday.

"There are a lot of Scottish lads already here, I didn't quite realise how many though, but they will only help me, because obviously they have all made the move south of the border at some point in their career.

"This is a massive opportunity for me personally and one I am determined to take. I am a striker that just loves to score goals, I like to combine with a partner, playing either just off a target man or on the shoulder of the last man."
