Sheff Utd complete double striker swoop

Sheffield United have completed the double signing of strikers Ade Akinbiyi and Bruce Dyer.

The Blades unveiled £1.75million record signing Akinbiyi after agreeing personal terms with the player yesterday, while journeyman Dyer arrives on a free transfer from Stoke.

Akinbiyi, 31, has signed a three-and-a-half-year deal and Dyer, 30, has been offered a contract until the end of the season. Both players passed medicals this morning.

United boss Neil Warnock confirmed he hoped to add another permanent signing to his promotion-chasing squad before the end of the transfer window.

'It's all been sorted, and the last 24 hours have been a bit hectic,' Warnock said.

'Both lads have passed a medical and both are going to play a part and, hopefully, help take us where we want to go.'

Warnock has long since been an admirer of Akinbiyi - the second highest scorer in the Championship with 12 league goals - and tried to sign him 11 months ago, but the then Stoke forward opted for a £600,000 switch to Burnley.

He added: 'I didn't know I would have to have 18-month's worth of patience, but the wait has been worthwhile.

'Ade is a record signing for me and I'm ever so pleased. We're looking at quite a few years ahead as well. He's just the right type of lad I think we need at the club - which is already a very good squad.'

On Dyer, Warnock added: 'Bruce has a contribution to make and with the likes of Danny Webber out injured and Brian Deane stretching his hamstring the other day, I felt we were very thin on the ground.

'And in case there had been complications with Ade, I wanted Bruce.'
