Tom Davies has expressed his excitement at finding a new club after joining Sheffield United.

The Blades announced the midfielder’s arrival this afternoon, almost two months after he left Everton.

Davies had spent his whole career at Goodison Park since joining the academy in 2009 and went onto make over 200 appearances for his boyhood club.

After struggling for regular game time, the 25-year-old turned down a new contract this summer and went onto be linked with a move to Scotland or Italy. However, he instead chose to remain in the Premier League with Paul Heckingbottom’s side.

Everton have lost only twice in their last nine meetings with the Blades and will be hoping that Davies doesn’t get one over on his former team when they reunite at Bramall Lane in two weeks’ time.

“I’m made up to be here and can’t wait to get started,” Davies told his new club.

“It was time for me to go from the previous club to join Sheffield United and I’m really excited for it, I think it is a great project that the team have here and I’m full of enthusiasm and hunger to get going.

“The Premier League is the best league in the world so when Sheffield United came knocking I thought this was the place to be, playing against the best teams and the best players.

“I played here (Bramall Lane) twice during Covid, and I think that helped Everton, but I’m looking forward to getting on the pitch in front of the full crowd and showing the fans what I’m about.”
