Sheffield United have sign Everton defender Mason Holgate on loan for the remainder of the 2023/24 season.

The 27-year-old becomes Sheff Utd's third arrival in January transfer window, along with Ben Brereton Diaz and Ivo Grbic

"I'm delighted to be here and to finally get it over the line," Holgate told the club's official website. "I've been waiting all month to get it sorted, obviously involving three teams, it is a little complicated but now we've got it to this point, I cannot wait to get going.

"I feel good, sharp and ready to go. This is the best league in the world that's why everyone aspires to play in it, I've played in it a bit now and hopefully I can come in and help the boys.

"Chris [Wilder] has faith and believes in me, he has told me what he thinks I can add to the team and I think I can do that so it makes sense to make this happen."

Holgate began his career at Barnsley, where he made his senior debut in 2014, before joining Everton a year later. 

He has made 126 Premier League appearances, scoring three goals, and is also a former England Under-21 international.

The versatile defender, who has been on loan at Southampton during the first of the season, will hope to make his Sheff Utd debut at home to Aston Villa on Saturday.
