SHEFFIELD UNITED HAVE completed the signing of Ireland international David McGoldrick on a free transfer.

The 30-year-old, who left Ipswich after a five-year-spell this summer, has joined Chris Wilder’s side after a successful trial.

The striker has signed a one-year deal with a view to an extension, having impressed in pre-season friendlies against Bradford City and Mansfield Town, with the player expected to make his home debut against Inter this evening.

McGoldrick, who scored eight goals in 24 appearances for Ipswich last season, links up with fellow Irish internationals Enda Stevens and John Egan at the Blades.

“I’ve continually said that we only want to bring in players who strengthen us and David ticks that box,” Wilder told the official Sheffield United website. “He’s a great link player, has a wealth of Championship experience and he may be coming into the best years of his career.

“David wanted to return north and this was too good an opportunity to turn down. His attitude and ability, not only in the matches he has played, but also on the training ground, is without question. I’ve spoken to a number of respected people about David and they cannot speak highly enough of him.”
