Sheffield Utd boss Chris Wilder delighted with summer market work

Sheffield United boss Chris Wilder is delighted with their summer market work.

The manager broke the club's transfer record for a fourth time when striker Oli McBurnie joined from Swansea for a fee rising to £20m, having already signed Bournemouth striker Lys Mousset for £10m alongside Preston forward Callum Robinson.

Former Manchester United and West Ham forward Ravel Morrison has also joined the Blades.

United have made additions in defence too. Phil Jagielka will bring a "calming influence", says Wilder, and they have secured the services of Manchester United goalkeeper Dean Henderson on loan for another season.

"It's about getting the right people in, and talented footballers as well," Wilder says. "We are teachers, we look to sign and improve players and make sure the structure of the recruitment is right."
