Sheffield United have signed Oldham forward Jose Baxter for an undisclosed fee on a three-year deal.

The 21-year-old scored 17 goals in 50 games for the Latics after joining on a free last September.

Oldham boss Lee Johnson had admitted on Thursday that the former Everton man could be on his way out of the club.

"Jose is a player who will get the fans off their seats and I am delighted he has chosen to come to here," Blades boss David Weir told the club website.external-link
