Ritchie De Laet Joins Sheffield United On Loan

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.”

  1. I’m surprised with the lenght of the deal aswell, if they had loaned him out until Christmas like you said then that would be acceptable. This is an emergency loan so i guess that’s the reason.
