Rochdale have agreed a deal with Matty Done after he secured his release from Sheffield United, HITC Sport understands from sources close to the club.

Done has been on the transfer list at Sheffield United, despite helping them win promotion to the Championship last season.

Versatile forward Done made 35 appearances last season as the Blades stormed to the League One title.

He has dropped out of favour under Chris Wilder as United prepare for life back in the Championship and the 29-year-old has not even been handed a squad number at Bramall Lane.

Chris Wilder, the Sheffield United manager,  looks on during the pre season friendly match between Sheffield United and Stoke City at Bramall Lane on July 25, 2017 in Sheffield, England.

A number of clubs have shown an interest in Done, but Rochdale are in pole position to bring him back to Spotland for a third stint.

Done, who started his career at Wrexham, had his first spell at Rochdale during the 2010-11 season and his form saw him win a move to Championship side Barnsley the following summer.

However, after two seasons with Barnsley he returned to Rochdale and helped the club win promotion to League One before being snapped up by Sheffield United in February 2015.

Rochdale boss Keith Hill is a big fan of Done having worked with him during his time in charge of Rochdale and Barnsley and he sees him as a playing a key role in the Rochdale side in the upcoming season.
