Jay O'Shea says swapping Derbyshire for Yorkshire was an easy decision to make and insists it's a move that should hopefully with further his career.
The versatile attacker has been a mainstay in the successes Chesterfield have enjoyed in recent seasons and he hopes this loan deal, which is initially until the end of the season, is one that will see him flourish further.
O'Shea, who is out of contract at the Proact in the summer commented: "Once I knew Sheffield United were interested and had submitted a loan offer on Friday I told Chesterfield I was very interested.
"From there it has all happened very quickly, I had little hesitation having spoken with the manager and I'm excited about what the future might hold.
"The interest of a club like Sheffield United makes you want to listen and the chance to sign for a club chasing promotion to the Championship would be very appealing to anyone."
The 28-year-old continued: "Obviously United are top of the league, a big club with ambition and when you have the opportunity to come and play your football at places like Bramall Lane you can't afford to let it slip away.
"I know I've got to work hard to get into the side, but I'm confident in my own ability as and when I get an opportunity to impress.
"I'm an attacking player, so I'm judged on goals and assists and that is what I'm looking to bring to the table here."
