League One side Rochdale have signed left-back Rhys Norrington-Davies on a season-long loan from Premier League club Sheffield United.

The 20-year-old is yet to make a first-team appearance for the Blades and spent last season on loan at Barrow in the National League.

Rochdale boss Brian Barry-Murphy said a left-back has been a "priority".

"It was imperative that we had a player who is capable of coming in and making us a stronger team," he said.
