Sheffield United added their fifth summer signing to the ranks on Thursday and according to boss Chris Wilder, it's a case of 'so far, so good' in the transfer window.

Richard Stearman arrived in Sheffield yesterday, joining Enda Stevens, Nathan Thomas, George Baldock and Ched Evans on the list of summer recruits and while Wilder admits that he would have liked a 'couple more over the line' at this stage, overall the manager is pleased with the business the club have done at this stage.

"Yeah, we are (happy)," he said. "We are a little bit frustrated that we have not got a couple more over the line, but we understand that, we are going to get pushed back, we went for good players.

"I am not going to get embarrassed about that but we are working our way, we've only got so much to play with in terms of fees and in terms of a budget, I'm ok with that. Every manager in every division would like to say that they have the best budgets, it gives them the opportunity of doing what they need to do. Our club is where we are at at the moment and I'll work within that to get the best out of that, still being competitive.

"It doesn't give you any guarantees when you have got money that you are spending right and you have success.

"We'll go about our way, which we have done last year and this year in a structured way that's aligned to how we are going to work."
