Sheffield United have completed the loan signing of Manchester City youngster James McAtee.

McAtee, an attacking midfielder, made five appearances for Premier League champions City in all competitions last season.

The 19-year-old will now spend this campaign at Bramall Lane, with the Blades having been keen to bring in a replacement for Morgan Gibbs-White, who impressed while on loan from Wolves last season, scoring 12 league goals in 37 appearances.

McAtee becomes the second City youngster to join the Championship club in this transfer window, after Tommy Doyle.

"Throughout football, people know him as a big talent," said Blades coach Paul Heckingbottom.

"We're excited to get him, and likewise, we're a good platform for him to come and learn."
