Sheffield United have made their seventh signing this summer, officially welcoming Tom Davies as he signs a three-year deal.
The 25-year-old midfielder has extensive experience in the Premier League. Davies, previously with Everton, appeared 20 times for the Toffees in various competitions last season. He brings with him a remarkable tally of over 150 Premier League matches throughout his career.
Davies ticks a lot of boxes for the Blades; he gives the squad some much-needed Premier League experience, after signing some inexperienced players this summer, and he is a free transfer.
The former Everton man spoke to SUTV about his new opportunity that awaits him at Bramall Lane:
“It was time for me to go from the previous club to join Sheffield United and I’m really excited for it, I think it is a great project that the team have here and I’m full of enthusiasm and hunger to get going.
“The Premier League is the best league in the world so when Sheffield United came knocking I thought this was the place to be, playing against the best teams and the best players.
“I played here (Bramall Lane) twice during Covid, and I think that helped Everton, but I’m looking forward to getting on the pitch in front of the full crowd and showing the fans what I’m about.”
United decided to sign Davies instead of Lewis O’Brien after Nottingham Forest’s demands of a £10m fee did not satisfy the Blades.
Paul Heckingbottom is delighted to get such an experienced midfielder through the door, as he explains to SUTV:
“Tom is someone we have admired for quite a while and he’s been desperate to come and play at Bramall Lane. We’ve kept in constant contact but we’ve got our man and we are delighted that he is now a Sheffield United player because he is someone who provides valuable Premier League experience.
“He brings energy, a work ethic and a good physicality and along with that Premier League experience he will become a valuable asset to us.”
