Last updated : 13 February 2006 By Site Editor
The 32-year-old Yorkshire-born striker has joined the Blades on a season-long loan deal with a view to making the move permanent at the end of that period.

"I've stepped down a league but this is a great chance to get straight back into the Premiership," Horsfield told the official Sheffield United website.

"It has been in the papers for over a month that United wanted to sign me.

"I'm delighted it is done and that I can come back up to Yorkshire and complete the deal.

"My aim now is to get a few goals to help us to promotion.

"I've only been here about an hour and I've seen the size of the club and we deserve to be in the Premiership."
