SHEFFIELD United will shortly unveil John Cofie as their first summer signing, The Star can reveal.

Cofie, who joins from Manchester United, is expected to spend the 2012/13 campaign on loan at Bramall Lane having enjoyed a similar spell at Royal Antwerp last term.

The teenager was born in Ghana but represents England at youth level.

He moved to Old Trafford after impressing for Burnley.

Wilson, who boasts strong links at Old Trafford, beat off competition from several Championship and League One clubs to capture Cofie’s signature.

Although his loan is set to be reviewed in January, Sir Alex Ferguson’s side are almost certain to let the striker stay with United until the end of the season.
