"He is exactly the type of striker that thrives at Stevenage - honest, hard working, resilient, able to score and team first,” he said.

“I am thrilled to add his strengths to the mix. We have lacked goals and we are determined that our transfer window work will change that. "

Parkhouse is yet to make a senior appearance for the Blades.
