Sheffield United have completed the signing of John Fleck on a free transfer, the clubs official website has confirmed.
The midfielder has signed a 3-year-deal with the Blades, and becomes new manager Chris Wilder’s fifth summer signing behind Chris Hussey, Jack O’Connell, Mark Duffy, and James Wilson.
Fleck, who won the Coventry City Player of the Year award last term, joins the Blades despite having offers from clubs in the Championship.
The 24-year-old started his career at Scottish giants Rangers, where he developed and spent a short stint in England on loan at Blackpool.
He joined the Sky Blues in 2012, and has gone on to make over 150 appearances for the club, impressing immensely over his three seasons at the Ricoh.
Fleck will now join up with his new Sheffield United teammates for pre-season, where he will hope to impress and force his way into a midfield which was severely lacking in goals and overall quality last season.
The Blades finished 11th in League One under Nigel Adkins, who has since been replaced by Chris Wilder.
Blades fans, what do we think? Another good signing? Who else would you like to see join? Let us know!
