Middlesbrough winger Mark Yeates joins Sheffield United

Mark Yeates
Dubliner Yeates started his career under Glenn Hoddle at Spurs

Sheffield United have signed winger Mark Yeates from Middlesbrough for an undisclosed fee.

The 25-year-old former Tottenham Hotspur trainee only moved to the the Blades' Championship play-off rivals last summer from Colchester United.

But he has now moved on to Bramall Lane on a two-and-a-half year contract.

Yeates was a regular in the opening weeks of the season under Gareth Southgate, but has not been a first-choice for new boss Gordon Strachan.

Since Strachan arrived at the Riverside in October, the majority of Yeates' appearances have come via the bench.

The Republic of Ireland B player was left out of Boro's squad for Saturday's game at Bramall Lane, a 1-0 win for his new club.
