Man United allow striker to leave on loan

Sheffield United have completed a double swoop for Lee Evans and James Wilson.

It had previously been reported that Sheffield United initially tried to sign Leonard from Southend United in the summer however The Shrimpers successfully managed to fend off the interest from the 2016/2017 Sky Bet League One champions.

Wilson, who netted twice on his United debut and made the last of his 20 senior appearances under Louis van Gaal in October 2015, joins a Blades attack that have scored the joint-third highest number of goals in the Championship to date in 2017-18.

Blades boss Chris Wilder said of his new signing: "Lee is a great age with his best years ahead of him".

The former England U21 worldwide, who has got 18 months left on his contract at Old Trafford, was due to spend last season on loan at Derby but returned in October after suffering a knee ligament injury in training.

"He says he is raring to go and is the fittest he has ever been, so couple that with his undoubted ability and desire to impress, than I'm sure he will improve the group".

Leonard started his career at Plymouth Argyle however the player made just one first team appearance for The Pilgrims and was released by the club in summer 2011.

Sheffield United - who have two more ex-Wolves men in their ranks in Leon Clarke and Richard Stearman - are due at Molineux on February 3.

The former England U21 worldwide, who has got 18 months left on his contract at Old Trafford, could make his Sheffield debut as early as this Friday against Sheffield Wednesday.
