Derby County and Sheffield United fans react to Conor Sammon's loan move

Derby County striker Conor Sammon has joined Sheffield United on a season-long loan.

It was confirmed on Saturday night by Sheffield United and Derby County via their official club websites that Conor Sammon would be playing his football at Bramall Lane next season.

The 28-year-old's loan move was met with both hope and skepticism by Blades fans, while the Derby faithful were largely unmoved by his departure.














The Republic of Ireland international may not be revered for his finesse on the ball or finishing, but he is a player that gives 100 percent every time he steps out on the pitch. 

In his time at Derby, especially in recent years, he has struggled with having the crowd on his back before he's even touched a ball. Nevertheless, he continues to make himself available and doesn't shy away from the challenge when asked. 

It's fair to say the Rams have moved on from Sammon, with Chris Martin, Darren Bent and Andreas Weimann all ahead of him for selection, but he has a chance to once again prove himself at Sheffield United. 

The Blades faithful may have to be patient with the former Wigan Athletic forward, but he will no doubt win some fans over with his endeavour from day one.
