Danny Lafferty joins Sheffield United on loan

Sheffield United take Danny Lafferty on loan from Burnley from the 2016-17 season.

Sheffield United have acquired the services of Burnley's Danny Lafferty on a season-long loan.

The 24-year-old marks the second arrival at Bramall Lane this evening, following on the heels of fellow defender Ethan Ebanks-Landell from Wolverhampton Wanderers.

Manager Chris Wilder told the club's website: "We are trying to create genuine competition for places and with Kieran Wallace going out today, Daniel will challenge Chris Hussey for the left-back role, as will Ethan, with the central defenders.

"Daniel is a good age and has shown a great appetite to join us."

Lafferty, a 13 times-capped Northern Ireland international, becomes the Blades' 12th signing of the transfer window.
