Caolan excited to be a Blade

1 September 2016

Caolan Lavery says he is 'excited' about the next chapter of his career, having crossed the steel city divide earlier this week.


Lavery officially put pen-to-paper on a three-year deal with the Blades on Tuesday evening and was introduced to the crowd prior to the Checkatrade Trophy clash against Leicester City, with United paying Sheffield Wednesday an undisclosed compensation fee for the services of the 23-year-old.


And the striker admits his move to S2 represents a new challenge and a fresh start, Lavery remarked: "It's taken a while to get a deal completed, but I'm relieved and looking forward to the future now.


"Once Sheffield United made their interest known my made was quickly made up, despite interest from elsewhere. This is a club that should be in the Championship at the very least and I'm determined to come in and get United moving in the right direction.


"I know I have come across from the other side of the city, but hopefully my work-rate, honesty and goals will show the fans that I'm a Blade now and that's all the matters."


The Canadian born marksman added: "I like to get in behind defenders, use my pace and score goals and hopefully I can hit the ground running here.


"This is a big club and an ambitious one too, the stadium is fantastic and the training ground is first-class and I genuinely can't wait to get started and show people what I'm about."
