Blades land midfield ace

SHEFFIELD United have today captured Coventry City's Michael Doyle on a free transfer.

The experienced midfielder has penned a two-year deal at Bramall Lane and becomes Blades boss Micky Adams' first permanent signing since he took over the reigns from Gary Speed.

Doyle, who was part of Leeds' promotion squad last season while on loan at Elland Road, is delighted to have made the move.

"I am looking forward to the challenge of helping this massive club get back up the table, and delighted to be re-united with Micky Adams because he was a big reason in me deciding to come here," Doyle said.
