"He has good experience, including at the top level, and will be comfortable in a number of positions across the back line, whether we play with three or four at the back."

Goode joins Adam Davies, who has arrived from Stoke City, as the second new face at Bramall Lane this month.

Elsewhere, Lys Mousset has joined Serie A side Salernitana on loan until the summer, when his Blades contract will expire.

  • Lys Mousset makes move to Serie A

That’s the deadline

and we heard just before it slammed shut that Millwall made a late move for Luke Freeman, after already taking Oli Burke from United in this window; the deadline has now passed but deals can still go through if a deal sheet was submitted before 11pm, allowing teams extra time to get deals over the line. So the drama could continue for a few hours yet!

Luke Freeman on the move?

Various reports have indicated that there are two teams still trying to prise Luke Freeman away from Bramall Lane. Luton Town and Millwall have both been mentioned so far, so there could be some movement before the window closes but they’ve 20 minutes to sort it. Freeman’s contract runs out in the summer and he’ll be off then for sure, but it wouldn’t do any harm to have his wages of the books now and maybe even a nominal fee

Stoke City have gone big

Stoke City have brought in Nigeria international striker Josh Maja on loan from Bordeaux as they prepare to make a promotion push in the second half of the season. The Potters are 12th in the table, level on points with United but having played two games more.

Boss Michael O’Neill said: “Josh will bring a different dimension to our attacking options and I’m really pleased that we’ve held off competition from a number of other clubs to secure him.”

Former Blade linked with another club

Dean Henderson had earlier in the day been linked with a loan move to Newcastle and Watford are now the latest club to be mentioned in connection with the former Blades loanee, who is keen to get out of Manchester United and play football for the rest of the season after growing tired of life on the Old Trafford bench.
