Rochdale sign Sean McGinty on loan from Sheffield United

Rochdale have increased their defensive options by signing Sean McGinty on loan from Sheffield United.

The 20-year-old, who has only played three games for the Blades, will be with the League Two leaders until the end of the season.

McGinty began his career at Manchester United, but never made a first-team appearance at Old Trafford.

Loan spells with four clubs followed, before he moved on to Sheffield United on a free transfer last summer.
