Sheffield United have confirmed the loan signing of Manchester United full-back Joe Riley for the rest of the season.

The Blades who sit top of League One have been interested in the 20 year-old for a few weeks but had to wait for him to recover from a hamstring injury and return to full fitness.

Born in Blackpool the left-sided defender has made 29 appearances for The Red Devil’s under-23 squad.

Riley also has made two senior first team appearances including a Europa League game against FC Midtjylland.
