Cofie links up with Blades

Young striker John Cofie has joined Sheffield United on a season-long loan.

The 19-year-old, who enjoyed a loan spell at Royal Antwerp in Beligum last term, will look to gain further experience at League One level.

The Blades were desperately unlucky to miss out on promotion after being overtaken by fierce rivals Wednesday during the run-in and then losing the Play-Off final in a dramatic penalty shoot-out.

Danny Wilson won the battle for Cofie's signature and he will look to help fire the Blades towards the top of the table.

The former Burnley youngster came off the bench against the South Yorkshire side in both legs of the 2011 FA Youth Cup final.
