Deal agreed for Sheffield United duo

We are delighted to announce the signings of Kyle Naughton and Kyle Walker from Sheffield United.

Naughton (pictured below), a 20-year-old full-back, made 50 appearances for his hometown club last season scoring three times, having only made his debut for The Blades against Port Vale in the League Cup last August and his performances were rewarded with a place in the PFA Championship Team of the Year.

The England Under-21 international had previously enjoyed a six-month loan at Gretna in the Scottish Premier League from January, 2008 where he appeared on 19 occasions.

Walker (pictured right), 19, made his competitive debut in November, 2008 against Oldham Athletic during a six-month loan spell with Northampton Town in League One where he played nine times.

The Sheffield-born England Under-19 defender returned to Bramall Lane in January and featured in seven matches including starting all three games in Sheffield United's run to the Championship Play-off Final.
