Bunn deal done

2 September 2013

Sheffield United have completed their second transfer deadline day signing with the arrival of Manchester City striker Harry Bunn.

Bunn, 20, has joined on a 28-day youth loan and follows Belgian midfielder Florent Cuvelier into Bramall Lane. Cuvelier signed a permanent deal from Stoke earlier on Monday.

Blades manager David Weir said of Bunn: "It's an opportunity to have a look at a good, young player. He's arriving on the back of an injury, but this is a chance to assess him and he offers us striking options."

Bunn, a regular goalscorer for City's Under-18s and Under-21s, has had loan spells with Rochdale, Preston, Oldham and Crewe in the last two years, but has yet to make a first-team appearance at the Etihad Stadium.

Following the arrival Bunn and Cuvelier, Weir has now brought in nine new players since taking over from Danny Wilson - Conor Coady, Lyle Taylor, Jose Baxter, Stephen McGinn, Febian Brandy, Sean McGinty and Jasper Johns.
