Coutts was offered the chance to remain a part of the Bramall Lane squad - but opted to move on and play games.
“I could have stayed at Sheffield United but I hadn't played much in the promotion season, so one of the reasons I wanted to leave was to play every week," Coutts said.
"When I met all the staff and the chairman at Fleetwood, I realised how ambitious the club was.
“I had a few things to think about last summer but the manager was desperate for me to come and see the training ground, and I realised why when I saw it.
“I don't think people on the outside realise what facilities we have. You just wouldn't expect it.
“They made the club something I wanted to be part of and made the decision quite easy."
