Blades line up more moves

09 January 2007 09:15
Sheffield United manager Neil Warnock is hopeful of completing more transfer swoops following the capture of Matthew Kilgallon. The Leeds United defender arrived at Bramall Lane in a £1.75million deal on Monday and Warnock is closing in on a number of other targets as he bids to keep the Blades in the top-flight. Kilgallon's former Elland Road team-mate David Healy has been linked with the South Yorkshire club alongside Preston North End hot-shot David Nugent. "I'd like to think something could happen," said Warnock, referring to the arrival of more players. "I'm talking to clubs all the time about bringing players in, so hopefully I might have another addition before the weekend." On the capture of Kilgallon, he added: "We think by signing Matthew we've a hell of a good chance of staying up. "But we're looking to the future. He is the type of player we want at Sheffield United. "He is up-and-coming and an England Under-21 international. He may have gone sideways for a few months, but I believe I can get the best out of him."
