As confirmed by the Blades’ official website, Khadra has joined the club on loan from Brighton & Hove Albion.
Set to represent the Championship outfit during the 2022/23 campaign, the 21-year-old will be determined to make a positive start to his spell at Bramall Lane.
Certainly no stranger to life in the second-tier, Khadra featured at this level for Blackburn Rovers during the previous campaign.
The attacker managed to show some glimpses of promise in this particular spell.
In the 26 league games he participated in for Rovers, Khadra scored four goals and provided three assists for his team-mates.
The Blades have now signed four players this summer.
As well as swooping for Khadra, manager Paul Heckingbottom has bolstered his squad by securing the services of Anel Ahmedhodzic, Tommy Doyle and Ciaran Clark.
With the Blades set to face Watford on Monday, it will be interesting to see whether Khadra is handed his competitive debut in this particular clash.
After his arrival was announced by the Blades, Khadra admitted on Twitter that he cannot wait to play in front of the club’s fans.
The former Blackburn man posted: “So happy!
“Looking forward to play in front of you Blades.
“See you on Monday.”

This could turn out to be a good bit of business by the Blades as Khadra demonstrated last season that he is capable of making a difference at this level.
As well as being directly involved in seven goals for Blackburn, Khadra completed 1.8 dribbles per game as he averaged a WhoScored match rating of 6.61 in the second-tier.
Considering that Heckingbottom was able to get the best out of Morgan Gibbs-White earlier this year, he will be confident in his ability to help Khadra reach new heights in terms of his development in the coming months.
Khadra’s versatility may prove to be useful for the Blades as he featured in a number of different attacking roles for Rovers in the previous term.
