@Yorkshirerrrr: Very happy with this. Burke & McBurnie partnership.

@bg1889blade: We’ve heard this from fans of other clubs when we’ve signed the likes of Fleck, Egan, Basham, Baldock, Stevens, Lundstram, Mousset, McBurnie, O’Connell and more. Not worked out too bad has it? Usually players find that club that just clicks. Hopefully we are Burke’s. Who knows?

@scottkeira13: Now announce Brewster or Dennis and it’s a perfect window

@maulebros: Top signing and top bloke! Wilder doing quality business! UTB

@oOJOENINTYOo: Very happy with this! Welcome to the Blades Oli Burke

@bringbackLB: The lad clearly has talent, should never have left Forest so soon IMO. Hope he can get his head down and Wilder can work his magic

@Amazing_Ampadu: That smirk on Wilder’s face says it all. He knows what Burke is about to do to the league

@DysonUTB: In Wilder we trust, plain and simple

@joehardy96: Hoping to be proved wrong, but not that excited about this one… Guess we've proved that Robinson didn't work so may as well try something different
