Sheffield United’s McAllister joins Shrewsbury

Have your say

Shrewsbury have signed Sheffield United midfielder David McAllister on a two-and-half-year contract for an undisclosed fee.

The Irishman, 24, had a successful three month-loan spell in Shropshire last term.

On signing McAllister, who ironically scored the only goal of the game when United beat the Shrews 1-0 at Bramall Lane at the start of the season, Turner said: “Initially it was a surprise that they would sell him as he’s figured in a lot of their games. But I think the fact that he has been here and knows all about us helped in his decision to join us.”

Blades’ defender Matt Hill is set to be out for six weeks with a broken jaw, sustained in Saturday’s FA Cup win at Oxford. He joins Neill Collins and Shaun Miller on the sidelines.
