“I’m looking forward to the challenge, I’ve been building up to a loan for a few years now and I think I’m ready,” he told the Blades’ website.

Meanwhile, Fulham have announced the signing of Shane Duffy on loan from Brighton.

The 30-year-old joins the Cottagers for the season and told the club’s website: “I’m delighted.

“It’s a really exciting challenge for me and the club, one I’m really looking forward to.”

Co-owner Tony Khan added: “Shane Duffy is a player with extensive experience in international football and in the Premier League. We’re very pleased that Shane is joining us on loan for this season.

“He’s a formidable and talented defender, and we expect that he’ll be a great fit in Marco’s squad. Come on Fulham!”
