Sheffield United has picked up Manchester United defender Ritchie De Laet on a 30 day loan deal. The Blades are lacking numbers at the back due to the injuries of Chris Morgan who has a hamstring injury and Rob Kozluk to a knee injury. De Laet can play multiple positions in defense so his versatility will be welcomed by the Blades.
Gary Speed who’s the manager of Sheffield United said:
“We need versatile cover in case of further disruption and Ritchie will go straight into our squad at Leeds on Saturday.
“I have seen him play loads of times, he’s a good, solid player and I’m very pleased to get him here.”
