Aged 24 he crossed across the Steel City to play in Red n White days ago after being released by the Owls.
He told sufc.co.uk: "It's been a difficult time for me at Wednesday so this is a good challenge. I want to prove myself at United.
"When I was released I had to look after myself because Chris Turner had made it clear when he came that I was not his type of player.
"I know that Neil Warnock wants me to improve areas of my game and I feel he will look after me and be straight-talking."
