"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."
