SHEFFIELD UNITED manager Chris Wilder has expressed his delight after adding to his striking department with the deadline day signing of Northern Ireland international Conor Washington.
The 26-year-old former Peterborough United player has signed a one-year deal with the Blades after his QPR contract was terminated.
Conor ticks a lot of boxes in what we are looking for at the top of the pitch, he’s got pace, power and works hard, a good fit for us.Chris Wilder
Wilder commented: “It is common knowledge that we have been searching for a striker and a lot of names have been bandied around the media. Conor ticks a lot of boxes in what we are looking for at the top of the pitch, he’s got pace, power and works hard, a good fit for us.”
Washington is United’s seventh signing of the summer, following Dean Henderson, Ben Woodburn, John Egan, Ollie Norwood, David McGoldrick and Kean Bryan into Bramall Lane.
