Kallio heads back to Blades

Sheffield United have re-signed former loan defender Toni Kallio from Fulham until the end of the season. The 31-year-old Finland international made two appearances while on loan at Bramall Lane in December before being recalled by the Premier League club. "We got him agreed on Christmas Eve but then he was recalled straight away because Fulham had injuries and a lot of games coming up in January," manager Kevin Blackwell told the club's official website. "But (Fulham boss) Roy Hodgson promised he would look at it again and, true to his word, he has. "Toni did very well for us and I'm glad that this move is done and we have him until the end of the season. "He has played in the Premiership recently, ticks all the boxes and importantly, knows our place and players so he doesn't have to start to get to know the place."
