Aston Villa's Republic of Ireland striker Scott Hogan has joined Championship rivals Sheffield United on loan until the end of the season.

The 26-year-old has made just seven appearances this season for Villa without scoring, six as a substitute.

Blades manager Chris Wilder said they had to "be patient" in pursuit of Hogan after first showing interest in the ex-Brentford forward last summer.

"I've made no secret of my admiration for Scott," Wilder said.
