Billy Sharp has officially been transferred to Sheffield United. The move was confirmed Saturday night for an undisclosed fee.

TIAT reported a few weeks ago that the 29-year-old striker might be moving to Sheffield, reuniting with Nigel Adkins. The two have had a history together.

Sharp began his career with Sheffield, and after a terrific tenure with Scunthorpe, he returned to the Blades in 2007.

Sharp made a statement on Twitter, saying how hoppy he is to be a Blade, but also how thankful he was to Whites fans:

The deal was struck for an undisclosed fee according to the official Twitter account for  Leeds United:

Sharp's time in Leeds was never consistent. He had some terrific showings throughout his tenure at Elland Road. But a regular spot never really took off for him. He scored 5 goals in 35 appearances for the club. While he didn't make a huge impact on the field for the Whites, his attitude towards the fans and his teammates was nothing but class.

It'll be exciting to see what he does in Sheffield, as they, like the Whites, look for promotion.
