Blades seal Windass deal
Dean Windass
Windass impressed Blades boss Neil Warnock
Middlesbrough striker Dean Windass has joined First Division Sheffield United on a free transfer.

And Blades boss Neil Warnock is set to throw the forward straight into Friday's battle with rivals Wednesday.

The 33-year-old enjoyed a successful loan spell with the Bramall Lane club last month, scoring three goals in four appearances.

Windass made 46 league and cup appearances for Premiership side Boro, scoring three goals but said he was delighted to move back to the Yorkshire club.

"There are a lot of smiling faces around here and I've already had a bit of stick from the lads about the gear that I wear," Windass told the club's website.

"I made it clear that I wanted to sign - Neil Warnock knew that and he has pulled up trees to get me.

"I've been ringing him constantly, pestering him to sign me.

"I want to play first team football. I'm delighted to be joining a First Division club doing well," added Windass.

"Hopefully now I will be able to score us a few goals that will guide us towards promotion."
