JAMES Harper's season-long loan at Sheffield United has today been made permanent.
The 29-year-old midfielder has left Reading, who he played against on Tuesday, and agreed a deal until the end of the season at Bramall Lane.
Blades manager Kevin Blackwell told the club's website: "He has started to really develop now and some of the Reading people the other night thought that he was looking like the Harper of old.
"He is getting on the ball and he is an infectious character but he can play, and I think that Reading missed having someone like him the other night."
