Charlton midfielder Ricky Holmes has become Sky Bet Championship Sheffield United’s fourth January signing, the Blades have confirmed.

The 30-year-old has moved to Bramall Lane on a two-and-a-half-year deal for an undisclosed fee.

Manager Chris Wilder, who worked with the player during his time at Northampton, told the club’s official website, “I worked with Ricky previously and it is no secret that I’m an admirer of his ability.

“He has something a little different and I’m confident that his best years are ahead of him. He completes the jigsaw of our incoming transfers and I must thank Paul Mitchell [head of recruitment] and Carl Shieber [head of football administration] for securing these deals early in the transfer window.”

Holmes scored 19 goals in 58 league appearances for Charlton, including one at Bramall Lane last season.
