Cofie Joins Blades On Loan

John Cofie has become Danny Wilson’s first signing of the summer as he joins Sheffield United on a season-long loan. The 19-year old spent last season in Belgium playing for Royal Antwerp, now he looks to bring that experience into the English game.

The youngster took to Twitter to express his opinions on the move:

Delighted to have signed for Sheffield United on loan for the season.Hopefully we can get promotion to the championship ‪#sufc‬ ‪#twitterblades‬

Hopefully the first-team football will give him the confidence he needs to compete at the highest level, Sheffield United will certainly be looking for promotion this term, so Cofie should get plenty of opportunities in front of goal.

The Sheffield United boss said “John is another exciting prospect out of the Manchester United Academy,” He continued “He has the pace and the ability to cause defences all sorts of problems and most importantly he scores goals. We are delighted to have completed this deal as we think it will be very beneficial to all parties.”

  1. I think this is a very good move for the youngstar, especially considering the fact that he’ll be getting the much needed 1st team playing time, which United certainly can’t provide with such a huge squad.
