Kevin McDonald has admitted it was a “tough decision” to leave Sheffield United after the midfielder this afternoon completed his move League One rivals Wolves.

After nearly a week of talks, the 24-year-old has penned a three-year deal at Molineux. McDonald was granted permission to speak to Wolves last week after the Black Country club lodged an undisclosed bid which triggered a clause in his contract, leading to the Scott missing Saturday’s 3-1 defeat at Brentford.

McDonald, who is in contention to make his Wolves debut at Bristol City this weekend, said: “I’m delighted that the deal has been completed and I can now look forward to start playing now.

“It was a tough decision for me and it’s been going on for five days now.

“The manager has been good and it was tough to say goodbye to the club but I think this is the right step for me and hopefully I can kick on from here.”

McDonald, who made 91 appearances at United, hitting five goals, turned down an improved contract offer from United.

Sheffield United chief David Weir said: “We made a big effort to keep Kevin, but he has chosen to move on and that is his decision.”
