Sheffield United have signed Luke Thomas from Leicester City on a season-long loan.

The left-back, who is a product of the Foxes’ Academy, has made a total of 56 Premier League appearances since breaking into their first team during the 2019/20 season.

Upon arriving at Sheff Utd, Thomas told the club's official website: "When United came in a few days ago, it was an easy decision for me. Coming back to playing Premier League football is obviously what I wanted to do. Coming here is a great experience and I can't wait to get started.

"I had interest elsewhere at the time but then United came along and it was an easy decision like I say - a no-brainer really. I can't wait to get going.

"I think this is a huge moment. Getting game time and getting into the team here is a key thing for me. I want to be playing as many games as possible, especially in the Premier League, my career has gone well so far, I've won a few things, so hopefully I can continue that here."

Known for his quality in both attack and defence, the lively 22-year-old was part of the England side that triumphed in the UEFA European Under-21 Championship earlier this summer.

Sheff Utd manager Paul Heckingbottom expressed his delight with his latest addition, stating: "Luke has got a top pedigree, he's a good young player who also has a wealth of experience at Premier League level.

“What also impressed me was that he was hungry to come in and is keen to get started."

Thomas becomes the Blades’ ninth summer signing and could make his debut this Saturday as Sheff Utd host Everton in the day's early kick-off.
