CITY could benefit after Sheffield United completed the signing of striker Oli McBurnie from Swansea for a club-record transfer.

The 23-year-old Scotland international, who scored 22 goals in the Championship last season, has agreed a four-year contract at Bramall Lane for an undisclosed fee. It was rumoured earlier this week the fee could be £17 million and go up to £20m with add-ons.

He previously played for Bradford City between 2013 and 2015 before moving to South Wales.

As a result of McBurnie's move, it is understood the Bantams are in line for a windfall in excess of £2.5 million as the club has a 15 per cent sell-on clause for the striker.

"We've had to be patient and work very hard to get Oli but I am confident he will be a tremendous success," Blades boss Chris Wilder told the club website.

"We need options at the top of the pitch and Oli, as anyone who has watched a significant amount of Championship football will tell you, offers plenty in that area."
