The full-backs have signed four-year deals with the Blades while Ethan Ampadu joins on loan.

Sheffield United have signed Derby pair Jayden Bogle and Max Lowe and sealed a loan deal for Chelsea's Ethan Ampadu.

The wing-backs have both signed four-year deals at Bramall Lane and move for an undisclosed combined fee while Wales international Ampadu will spend the season on loan.

Chris Wilder told the club website: "The Championship has been a great recruitment area for us and I wanted to bring some young players in who will provide competition for places.

"Jayden and Max will put huge pressure on George (Baldock) and Enda (Stevens).

"It was important we got the right characters, the right type of players, ones who are athletic and technically very good, both are modern-day wing-backs and I'm looking forward to working with them."

Regarding Ampadu, he added: "Ethan is an outstanding young player for Chelsea, and we've worked really hard to get his signature for the season.

"It's an important season for Ethan and playing in the Premier League for us is a good move for everyone. He brings a lot of qualities to the group and he's someone we've tracked for two or three seasons."

The 19-year-old joined the Blues from hometown club Exeter in 2017 and has since won 13 caps for Wales, the land of his mother's birth, as well as spending last season on loan with Bundesliga side RB Leipzig.

Bogle, 20, had spells at Reading and Swindon before moving to Derby as a youngster in January 2016. He was promoted to the first team for the 2018-19 season and went on to make 50 appearances.

Lowe, aged 23, was a product of the Derby academy and recently had a successful loan spell at Aberdeen.

Wilder added: "We've got a clear plan and identification of what we need and we're still going through that process. We're not just signing players because other people are in for them, we're signing these players because they fit into what we are about.

"It's game on for everyone, it's not a warning, it's a fact and yet again I have to thank the board for making the two permanent signings happen because it's a great bit of business for the football club."

Sunday's key events


GOLF
· The men's golf reaches its conclusion, with plenty of players still in medal contention. Home favourite Hideki Matsuyama is one shot off Xander Schauffele's lead, while Great Britain's Paul Casey is another shot further back and Tommy Fleetwood is also in the mix (11.30pm-8am)

CYCLING - BMX
· Great Britain have already made history in the BMX events in Tokyo, something Charlotte Worthington and Declan Brooks will be looking to add to in the women's (2.10am) and men's (3.10am) freestyle finals

SWIMMING
· The final day of swimming action begins with the men's 50m freestyle final. Ben Proud could add to a medal-laden Games in the pool for Team GB so far, although he is up against USA's Caeleb Dressel, who is going for his fourth gold in Tokyo (2.30am)
· From sprint to endurance, Great Britain's second medal hope of the day comes through Daniel Jervis in the men's 1500m freestyle final (2.44am)
· Team GB will again be among the heavy favourites for gold in the last swimming event of the Games - the men's 4x100m medley relay final - having won the mixed event in a world record time on Saturday (3.36am)

BOXING
· Already guaranteed at least a bronze, Pat McCormack takes part in the men's welterweight semi-final against Ireland's Aidan Walsh with a spot in the gold medal final at stake (4.03am)
· Ben Whittaker is also in the semi-finals of the men's light heavyweight and will be looking to continue Team GB's success in the ring (4.51am)

TENNIS
· There will be a surprise on the top of the men's tennis podium after Novak Djokovic missed out on a medal altogether. Alexander Zverev takes on Karen Khachanov in the second match on Centre Court at the Ariake Tennis Park (7am-2pm)

SAILING
· Alison Young will be going for gold in the women's laser radial medal race (7.33am)

ARTISTIC GYMNASTICS
· Team GB's Max Whitlock will look to defend his 2016 Olympic title in the men's pommel horse final (10.41am)

ATHLETICS
· The men's high jump final includes GB's Tom Gale, although his chances of a medal look bleak (11.10am)
· So often the blue-riband event of the Olympics, the men's 100m final takes place as the world's fastest bid to be crowned Usain Bolt's successor. Three Brits have made it into the semi-finals (11.15am-11.32am), and the final looks wide open after an underwhelming display by favourite Trayvon Bromell on Saturday (1.50pm)

HOCKEY
· Great Britain face India in the men's quarter-final (1pm)
