The veteran defender was let go by the Blues after 12 years at the club and was tipped to go back to the Blades, the club from which he was signed by David Moyes for just £4m in 2007.
The Yorkshire club are back in the Premier League this season after gaining promotion from the Championship as runners-up to Norwich City.

Solid, honest player - one of a the best and I'm sure you'll do your best to help Sheffield Utd this season.
But please don't score against Everton!

Good luck to him he's got a couple of years left in him, glad he is getting another Premier League club too I'm sure he will still do a job like the end of last seasons when he got his swan song at Goodison. I'm also glad we are not just paying him to sit in the bench we have done that far too much in the past. Brands has got a big job lowering the wage bill this summer, Jagielka and Williams leaving will certainly help. But a lot more to go.

Be interesting too if Dowell goes back with him, although I have heard that Huddersfield are trying to get him for a year's loan. I think this could be Kieran's make or break year, to make an impression, it would be better to see him tried for a year in the Premier League rather than a team seeking promotion from the Championship.

By the way, has he had a testimonial from EFC?

Guys... Dowell? Please please let it go. We want to improve on last season's finish, does anyone really believe Kieran can contribute to that aim?
A solid Championship career beckons... as it does for most of our U23s.

It's not his fault he went trophyless, that's down to the era he's been a blue in, we simply aren't a massive club know more.
First ever England captain to come out of the club also!!! (Whilst being at us I mean)
Also may I add he was one of only a few (Coleman and Baines also) who turned down bigger clubs during there best years.
A true blue.

The first game of last seasons Jags looked in really great shape, obviously he had put the work in over the summer knowing he had a fight on his hands to stay in the team. Then he had that dodgy red card, a succession of ill timed niggling injuries and even Arsenal goal apart it looked as if the writing was on the wall. I think he can make a difference for Utd bringing some experience at the back.

I agree with your sentiments but resent the use of one word.
"Also may I add he was one of only a few (Coleman and Baines also) who turned down bigger clubs during there best years."
Define "bigger." I prefer the term "wealthier" I can't accept that say Blackburn were a "bigger" club when they won the league in 95. By the same token, Chelsea and City are having success now, but so did Huddersfield and Preston once upon a time.

Great professional and he will be up for getting one over on us, when we play the Blades.
