The future excites Jamal

21 May 2014

Jamal Campbell-Ryce says he feels honoured and privileged to be given the opportunity to play for Sheffield United under the management of Nigel Clough.

Speaking after agreeing a deal that will commence on 1st July, the former Notts County attacker is itching to get started with his new Club and prove himself to the Bramall Lane faithful.

Campbell-Ryce remarked: "Without a shadow of a doubt this is the biggest club that I've played for. I've been fortunate to represent some great teams but this one eclipses the lot.

"The fans, the stature and the set-up. I'm really excited about it all. County offered me a new deal and I don't have a bad word to say about them because I really enjoyed my time there and I owe them a lot.

"But when the chance to come here arose, that was it. I'm just so excited that I can't wait to get going. It will be an honour and a privilege to pull on the shirt.

"It was a surprise when I heard Sheffield United were interested in me," the 31-year-old continued.

"But a really pleasant one and then everything happened so quickly.

"I caught wind of it and within a week has been done.

"It means a lot when a manager like Nigel Clough gives you that recognition. Especially when you see how well he did last season."
