1220109287_spt_ai_sheffutd_cardiff_04Sheffield United's promotion credentials are about to be boosted with the signing of Wigan striker Marlon King on a loan basis, according to The Mirror. The 29-year-old partnered current Blades striker Darius Henderson at Watford between 2005-2008. The duo netted 53 goals between them at Vicarage Road.

The Mirror have been spot on this season in regards to Sheffield United's ins and outs before they have actually been confirmed, and they are now reporting that King is on his way to S2 after a move to Championship rivals Newcastle United fell through.

Kevin Blackwell will have an appetising headache if the Wigan man signs the dotted line at United with the likes of Ched Evans, Jamie Ward and Darius Henderson already on the books. The signing could be really promising as the latter already has experience playing alongside the London-born attacker.
