Sheffield United sign Estonia keeper Mihkel Aksalu

Sheffield United

Sheffield United have completed the signing of Estonia international goalkeeper Mihkel Aksalu on a two-and-a-half year contract.

The 25-year-old joins for a nominal fee from FC Flora Tallinn after a successful trial at Bramall Lane.

Aksalu has six caps for his country, the last coming in a friendly against Angola in December.

He told BBC Radio Sheffield: "This move has been like a dream come true. I'm really happy to be here."

Blades boss Kevin Blackwell told the club website: "He has proved to be one of the best goalkeeping triallists we have seen for a long time.

"It is a terrific opportunity for him and if he continues his development he will become the number one Estonian goalkeeper.

"We are hoping he can fulfil his undoubted potential with Sheffield United and cement his international career."
