Blades sign O'Toole from Watford

Sheffield United have signed Watford midfielder John-Joe O'Toole on loan for the rest of the season.

The 20-year-old, who has scored eight goals this season, could make his debut in Sunday's clash with Birmingham.

O'Toole told BBC Radio Sheffield: "I'm just delighted to come up here. I jumped at the opportunity."

"I just want to do my best here and hopefully put a few in the net and see what happens," added the Republic of Ireland Under-21 international.

O'Toole was rumoured to be a January transfer window target for Championship leaders Wolves prior to Christmas.

But he has fallen out of favour at Vicarage Road, having not started a league game for Watford since being substituted at half time in the 4-2 home defeat to Bristol City on Boxing Day.

He will not be available for the Blades' FA Cup fifth round replay against Hull City on Thursday night as he is cup tied.
