The 29-year-old trained with Chris Wilder's squad for the first time yesterday but his move was not processed until earlier today due to a logistical issues.

"James gives us something different and we believe there is more to come from him. We've seen a lot of him over the years and he is a very difficult striker to play against," Wilder said.

"James has been part of some success at Bradford, he has been part of a winning team and hopefully he is joining another one."

Like Jay O'Shea, who has joined the League One leaders on loan from Chesterfield, he is expected to make his United debut against AFC Wimbledon next month.
