Sheffield United have boosted their squad with the signings of Le Havre's Senegal defender Mamadou Seck and Helsingborgs' Jamaica striker Luton Shelton.
Twenty-seven-year-old centre-back Seck moves to Bramall Lane on a free transfer, while Shelton, 21, will cost the Blades nearly £2million.
Former Ajaccio stopper Seck has agreed a deal running until the summer of 2009 with the Blades, while Shelton needs international clearance to complete the formalities of his arrival in England.
While United boss Neil Warnock welcomes two new players to his squad, veteran striker Neil Shipperley has left the club after his contract was cancelled by mutual consent.
There may be further movement by the Blades in the transfer marker, with Warnock heavily linked with moves for Aston Villa midfielder Lee Hendrie and Colchester United wing-back Greg Halford.
