Liverpool's St Helens-born midfielder Conor Coady has joined League One side Sheffield United on a six-month loan deal.

The 20-year-old, from Haydock, joins the Blades, currently managed by former Everton defender David Weir, in time for the beginning of their 2013-14 campaign on Friday, August 2.

Coady, captain of the Reds' U21s team, made his senior Liverpool debut during 2012-13, starting the Europa League clash against Anzhi Makhachkala in November 2012.

He also made his Premier League bow as a late substitute at Fulham in May this year and skippered England at the U20 World Cup earlier this summer.

Weir said: "I've been aware of Conor's talents for a long-time, through his development with Liverpool and England and he is a great prospect.

"He will add competition for places in the midfield and will be an asset for us."
