Sheffield United have completed their first signing since being promoted to the Premiership by bringing in defender David Sommeil.
The 31-year-old Frenchman was released by Manchester City earlier this month and thus joins the Blades on a free transfer.
United boss Neil Warnock told his club's official website: 'One or two clubs from London were looking at David but he didn't want to move house and we are pleased to have him on board.'
Sommeil joined City for £3.5million from Bordeaux in January 2003 and made 49 league appearances, scoring five times.
He also spent time on loan at Marseille in 2004.
