Defender Short agrees Blades move
Craig Short
Short will continue his long career with Sheffield United
Sheffield United have agreed to sign defender Craig Short after he was released by Blackburn Rovers.

Short, 37, will begin pre-season training with the Blades although his one-year deal will be officially completed on 1 August.

Sheffield United boss Neil Warnock has previously managed Short at Scarborough and Notts County.

Warnock told the club website: "I am delighted to get Craig. I've known him a long time and know what he can do."

Short has also played for Scarborough, Notts County, Derby County and Everton.

Meanwhile, transfer-listed forward Andy Liddell, 32, has left Bramall Lane after his contract was terminated to help him find another club.

Warnock added: "Andy did well for us last season, but by letting him go it will free up some wages to bring in other players as well as Craig Short."

The former Barnsley man scored six goals in 39 league and cup games after joining from Wigan last summer - including a brace in their 3-1 win over Aston Villa in the FA Cup.
