Danny Wilson believes the arrival of Shaun Miller, Tony McMahon and Matt Hill can help Sheffield United become the most explosive team in League One next season.
Wilson’s team amassed 90 points and 92 goals en route to the play-off final last term before losing May’s Wembley showpiece to Huddersfield.
Despite that defeat, the former Northern Ireland international has vowed United will once again try to blaze a trail rather than bludgeon their way towards promotion.
Speaking after his latest acquisitions were unveiled at Shirecliffe yesterday, Wilson said: “Bringing these lads in only strengthens what we’ve already got.
“We want a vibrant and energetic squad. We want to be entertaining.
“Pace in certain areas was a problem but that’s not the case now.
“We’ve rectified that and got another string to our bow.”
Wilson, who captured John Cofie and Darryl Westlake earlier this month, signed Hill on loan from Blackpool last season.
Fellow defender and free agent McMahon joins from Middlesbrough while striker Miller, who has also penned a two-year contract, was previously with Crewe.
As The Star reported earlier this year, Wilson has been tracking Miller, whose deal contains a further 12-month option, since taking charge last summer.
“We asked then but he was out of our price bracket,” the United manager added.
“He got overshadowed by Nick Powell who went to Manchester United this year and perhaps lost a bit of confidence, but he’ll get that back and be as exciting as he always was.”
