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, www.sufc.co.uk: “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.
