Blades: Sheffield United sign two defenders

SHEFFIELD United have bolstered their defence with another loan signing after Aston Villa agreed to loan Shane Lowry to Bramall Lane for the rest of the season.

The 21-year-old's arrival comes just hours after West Brom's Joe Mattock completed a similar move.

Lowry will report for training at Shirecliffe tomorrow.

Mattock, the England under-21 international defender, who started his career at Leicester, could make his debut at Coventry City on Saturday.

"Joe is naturally left-footed and having him here will help us climb the table," manager Micky Adams said.
