Despite experiencing limited playtime with Sheffield United in the previous season, Sharp expressed a strong desire to continue with his boyhood team in the Premier League. However, due to circumstances at the club, the two parties could not agree on a contract extension.

The Galaxy are currently 2nd-bottom in the Western Conference, seven points off a play-off qualification place. Billy Sharp will get to play alongside the likes of Javier Hernández, Douglas Costa and Riqui Puig.
