Sheffield United boss David Weir is delighted with their deal for Cardiff City defender Simon Lappin.

The 30-year-old former St Mirren and Norwich man has not appeared for the Bluebirds since joining them on a permanent deal in January.

Weir told BBC Radio Sheffield: "He's been successful in this league and he's a leader. He adds to our depth in a number of positions."
