League One strugglers Sheffield United have swooped to sign Simon Lappin on a one-month loan deal from Cardiff City, writes Dom Howson.
Lappin, who can be deployed anywhere on the left flank, is in line to make his United debut in tonight’s clash with Crawley Town at Bramall Lane.
The 30-year-old played just two times for the Bluebirds last season.
On joining United, who are bottom of the table, on a temporary basis, Lappin said: “I am really looking forward to the challenge and this is a great opportunity for me.
“I want to play some games and help the lads out of the current predicament we find ourselves in.
“When you aren’t playing at your club, going out on-loan is a fantastic option, but first and foremost I just want to contribute to helping the lads.”
