The striker left Leeds after a unproductive season at Elland Road.

Leeds United and Sheffield United finally came to terms over the long-protracted transfer of Billy Sharp. The striker failed to have a big impact at Elland Road despite arriving with plenty of promise last summer.

He scored on his debut against Middlesbrough for Leeds, a winning goal, but could not keep up that goalscoring form.

He finished his one and only season at Leeds with just five goals in 28 games for Leeds and is now on his way back to Sheffield United.

He has already had two spells at Bramall Lane. He started his professional career at the club and returned to the club after a spell with Scunthorpe United in 2007.

Both his previous stints with The Blades have been fairly unproductive and unsuccessful. This time Sheffield United fans will hope the former Leeds player can lead his hometown club to promotion from League One.

Today he has been unveiled by Sheffield United as a Blade once again. He, along with fellow newbies Connor Sammon and old friend Martyn Woolford, were paraded on the pitch today prior to Sheffield United’s impressive 2-2 draw with Premier League Newcastle United.

Sharp will now hope for more success with The Blades than he did with their Yorkshire rivals.
