David McGoldrick says his move to Bramall Lane is one that 'excites' him.
Speaking shortly after putting pen-to-paper on an initial one-year deal, the former Ipswich forward is looking forward to his career at S2, having impressed during a recent trial period with the club.
He remarked: "I've been here for just over a week now and I've got a real feel for the club.
"I'm from down the road in Nottingham and I know of the traditions of this big, big club, so I was champing at the bit really to come and prove myself.
"The club speaks for itself and there is some really quality amongst the squad, with a few additions, I don't see why we can't be pushing at the top of the division."
The 30-year-old added: "The lads have been fantastic with me and so have the coaching staff, they've made me feel welcome and comfortable and now I want to repay the faith the manager has shown in me.
"This is a move that excites me, it close to my family roots, but I've not come here to sit around, I want to play and contribute to a successful season.
"The manager is a Blade through and through. He's told me what he wants and demands, but I'm a player that will always give it my all."
