Sheffield United new boy targets promotion push

Have your say

RYAN Flynn, Sheffield United’s latest signing, last night set his heart on leading the South Yorkshire club to promotion.

The 22-year-old officially completed his move from Scottish Premier League outfit Falkirk on the same day that striker Jordan Slew ended speculation about his future by agreeing a new contract.

Flynn, who joined Liverpool as a teenager before returning to the Forth Valley, said: “It was disappointing that the club suffered relegation last season but it is moving forward now and everyone is determined to get it back in the Championship as soon as possible.

“League One will be new to me but I am sure the gaffer and the more experienced lads will know what to expect and they will certainly help me improve as a player.

“I just want to work hard, impress the manager and establish myself in the team.

“This is a challenge I can look forward to and if I can help Sheffield Untied do well then I will be happy.”

United manager Danny Wilson, whose squad arrived in Malta this morning, described Flynn as a “good acquisition”. “We have had an inkling for a while that Ryan might be available and, although there have been other clubs interested, we have managed to tickle his fancy,” he said.
