Sheffield United make fourth summer addition

Sheffield United have completed the signing of George Baldock, who becomes their fourth arrival since returning to the Championship.

The Blades return to the second-tier of the football ladder after winning League One last season, and manager Chris Wilder has wasted little time in refining his squad.

Striker Ched Evans has rejoined the club he served from 2009-2012, winger Nathan Thomas joins from Hartlepool United, and fullback Enda Stevens arrives from Portsmouth.

And now it has been confirmed that Baldock has left MK Dons to sign a three-year contract with United for an undisclosed fee, and the right fullback is thrilled with the move.

“I’m absolutely delighted to have signed and committed my future to this impressive club,” he told the official club website. “I was excited when I heard of Sheffield United’s interest, for a number of reasons, including the manager’s record over the past couple of seasons, and the passion of the fans when they travelled to Milton Keynes a couple of months ago.”

The Blades become the 24-year-old’s second club, although he has also had loan spells at Northampton Town, Tamworth (twice), IBV (Iceland), and Oxford United (twice).
