Boss Chris Wilder says new signing Richairo Živković will add 'genuine pace' to United's attack after he completed a loan move to Bramall Lane.

The former Ajax and Oostende front-man has joined until the end of the season from Chinese side Changchun Yatai, with Wilder confirming there is a view to make the move permanent.

Wilder heralded the efforts of the recruitment team, headed by Paul Mitchell, who he says worked hard to get the deal done, explaining Živković is someone he has tracked for some time.

The Blades boss confirmed the Dutch youth international is still young enough to develop, admitting his pace was a key attribute in his decision to bring him to S2.
