Florent Cuvelier has explained quitting Stoke City for Sheffield United.

The young Belgian midfielder is regarded highly inside English football.

The 20-year-old Belgian, who never graduated to the first team after joining from Portsmouth three years ago, said: "It was a tough decision to leave Stoke City in the Premier League, but Sheffield United, like me, have designs on returning there in the future.

"At this stage in my career I really need to start playing on a consistent basis - the only way you improve is by playing regularly."
