Sheffield United to snap up ex-Middlesbrough, Vancouver midfielder Robson

Sheffield United have signed Scottish midfielder Barry Robson subject to an international clearance.

The 34-year old former Middlesbrough star departed Vancouver Whitecaps earlier in January after just six months in MLS and will now continue his career with the Blades at least until the end of the season.

"We've lost Nick Blackman to the Premier League (Reading), but fortunately we've managed to bring in Barry at short notice on a deal until the end of the campaign," Blades manager Danny Wilson told the club's official website.

"When someone of his experience and quality comes along you have to sit up and take notice and I'm delighted a deal can be completed, especially given the fact that he's been back in the country less than a week.

"He gives us options in offensive positions, he will score goals and be a supply line for others."
