Blades swoop to sign Leeds keeper Bennett

July 26, 2006

Sheffield United have agreed an undisclosed fee with Leeds for veteran goalkeeper Ian Bennett.

The 34-year-old spent time on loan at Bramall Lane two years ago and is now set to make a full-time move to the Blades after just one season at Elland Road.

He made just four appearances for Leeds last season and will become the second player to move south to the Blades this week, following striker Rob Hulse`s £2.1million move.
