Blades agree loan swap for Dyer

Nathan Dyer
Dyer signed a new contract at Southampton in the summer

Sheffield United have agreed to sign Southampton winger Nathan Dyer on loan with striker Jordan Robertson moving in the opposite direction.

Dyer, 20, has made just one start for the Saints this season while Robertson, also 20, is yet to play a league game.

The two clubs have agreed to keep the players until Christmas with an option to buy in January.

Blades boss Kevin Blackwell told BBC Radio Sheffield: "Nathan has blistering pace which is what we need."

Robertson previously had loan spells with Dundee United, Oldham Athletic, Northampton and Torquay and Blackwell added: "It's a good move for Jordan as well."

Meanwhile the Blades have also offered trials to former Manchester City winger Kiki Musampa and ex-Manchester United and Bolton player Quinton Fortune.
