Sheffield United appear to have wrapped up the signing of Malmo defender, Anel Ahmedhodzic, with the Bosnian spotted on the Bramall Lane pitch today.
United have been trying to cement a deal for Ahmedhodzic this week and Yorkshire Live reported earlier today how a medical had already taken place. The Bosnian defender is set to sign for the Blades on a long-term deal, with United set to pay around £3m for his services.
And while no official announcement has come just yet, a photo doing the rounds on Twitter has Ahmedhodzic posing on the Bramall Lane turf and looking quite happy with himself. The image, shared by @Ventola_BHF, shows United’s latest new signing stood with the away end in the background. Proof, if anymore was needed, that this deal is a go.
Ahmedhodzic will become the third signing for United in the space of a few days. Adam Davies signed a two-year deal just last week, while Tommy Doyle had his move to United confirmed yesterday.
Our View: Ahmedhodzic Signs For Sheffield United, And It’s Just What’s Needed
It’s nice to see United splashing a bit of cash and it seems we have got ourselves a quality operator on the books.
A full international defender was just what was needed to join this squad. It gives United cover and competition in a crucial area of the pitch and shows the club do have some intent about them when it comes to winning promotion this coming season.
With a bit of luck, Ahmedhodzic fits in and adapts quickly with the Blades squad. He’ll be on his way to Portugal soon enough and that will benefit him massively.
